We recommend running our official image. Should you need any help, please see our tips for VM installation or contact us for free support. You can also browse our guides to see if a specific one for your VM is available.

Please select a hypervisor or media type

Snapt can be run on an existing Linux server. If you are undecided, we recommend Ubuntu. We only support 64-bit Linux. RedHat, CentOS and Fedora users should use the RedHat Linux bundle, while all other users can use the Standard one. We recommend using an official Snapt VM image when possible.

For help, please see our bundle installation guide.

  • Extract the bundle: tar -C / -xvf ./Snapt-Linux-*.tar.gz
  • Start the program by running: /usr/local/snapt/
  • You may now log in on port 8080 with a web browser

OVF is a flexible format that we recommend using on most hypervisors. You will extract the .gz file, then the .tar file, and be left with an .ovf image to load. This is the recommended image if you are unsure about which to use.

You can also often convert OVF files to whatever format you require, or upload them to many hosted or cloud-based solutions.

  • If required, select Ubuntu 64-bit or Linux Other 64-bit.
  • You must extract both the .gz and .tar files.
  • Unknown Guest or Unknown Operating System error from ESXi 6.5: If you receive the error about the OS, select 'Yes'. Before you power up the new machine, edit the machine and go to 'Options'. Then change the OS to SUSE 11 64-bit.

Hyper-V can use a converted OVF image, which we have pre-created for you. You can load this directly into Hyper-V to start the Snapt appliance.

Should you have any problems, you can use the original OVF or the ISO.

  • If required, select Ubuntu 64-bit, or Linux Other 64-bit.

OpenStack images are in the qcow2 format. This is used by Linux KVM, and so many Linux or open-source clouds due to the format type. If you are unsure, we still recommend the OVF, or contacting us.
