Previous limitations on 10 users

Previously Searchdaimon was not free and had a limitation on 10 users if you did not purchase a license. This has recently been removed, but unfortunately not all of the images above has been updated yet. If your installation has this limitation you can simply remove it by entering a new freely available license key. Please see her for instruction: Upgrade existing installations to the open source version.

The Searchdaimon Enterprise Search (ES) virtual appliance contains a stripped down Linux operating system and our software fully configured, ready to run, without the need for doing any software installation.

The different VMware® versions requires 64-bit CPU with virtualization enabled. VirtualBox version can be run on a 32-bit CPU.

The tutorial video shows the complete installation process for VMware® ESX Server. See the end of the video on how to configure ES regardless of VMware® platform, or view the documentation for more information.
