Installation Instructions

Step-by-step installation instructions for Service Virtualization can be found in the HP Service Virtualization Installation Guide. The Installation Guide is available in PDF format in the root folder of the Service Virtualization installation package.

You can also open the Installation Guide from the Windows Start menu after installation.

Service Virtualization Server upgrade: To work with FIPS mode and Service Virtualization 3.70, enable FIPS only after successfully installing Service Virtualization Server 3.70.

System Requirements

This section includes:

Minimum hardware configuration

Recommended hardware configuration

Supported operating systems

For a complete list of all supported operating systems, database servers, browsers, and development environments, see the Service Virtualization support matrix on the HP Software Support site at: http://h20230.www2.hp.com/sc/support_matrices.jsp.

Minimum hardware configuration

The HP Service Virtualization Server 3.70 and HP Service Virtualization Designer 3.70 can run on any hardware configuration that is using a supported operating system and has at least 1GB of physical memory installed and available for each product.

With the minimal hardware configuration, you can perform all functional testing scenarios and some basic performance testing scenarios, provided that they do not create too much load on virtualized services.

Recommended hardware configuration

Virtualization hardware sizing is complicated and may include many factors. For detailed sizing recommendations, contact HP Customer Support. For contact information, see HP Support.

The following hardware configurations provide a good performance balance for normal usage scenarios, where each product is installed on a separate machine.

HP Service Virtualization Designer
  • Intel® Core™2 Duo T7500 @ 2.2GHz or similar

  • 4GB physical memory

  • Free physical disk storage space

    The Designer typically uses less than 1GB of space for installation and all Service Virtualization projects, as follows:

    • 250 MB for the Designer installation
    • 10 MB for each service, where this figure can grow as recorded traffic increases

    Use the following calculation to calculate your required size:

    15*MSG_SIZE*MSG_COUNT

    where:

    MSG_SIZE = learned message size in kilobytes

    MSG_COUNT = the number of unique messages learned during the learning process

HP Service Virtualization Server (32-bit edition)
  • Intel® Xeon® 5140 @ 2.33GHz or similar
  • 4GB physical memory
  • Free physical disk storage space:

    • 250 MB for the Server installation.
    • The Server does not maintain any data on the local disk. Data are loaded from and saved to the Database Server.

HP Service Virtualization Server (64-bit edition)
  • Intel® Xeon® 5140 @ 2.33GHz or similar
  • 8GB physical memory
  • Free physical disk storage space:

    • 250 MB for the Server installation.
    • The Server does not maintain any data on the local disk. Data are loaded from and saved to the Database Server.
Database server
  • Intel® Xeon® 5140 @ 2.33GHz or similar
  • 8GB physical memory
  • Database storage:

    The database typically requires 1GB of disk space, but this figure can grow as recorded traffic increases.

    Use the following calculation to calculate your required size:

    30*MSG_SIZE*MSG_COUNT

    where:

    MSG_SIZE = learned message size in kilobytes

    MSG_COUNT = the number of unique messages learned during the learning process

Supported operating systems

Notes and Limitations

JDBC.

REST services.

Service call activity (SCA).

FIPS.

Problem: Encrypted Service Virtualization projects created before version 3.70 cannot be read by Service Virtualization libraries used by LoadRunner/Unified Functional Testing (UFT) integration versions earlier than 12.50.

This is due to encryption modifications in Service Virtualization 3.70 to enable use on machines with FIPS.

Workaround: To work with Service Virtualization 3.70 and LoadRunner/Unified Functional Testing (UFT) integration versions earlier than 12.50, change settings in the Designer configuration file VirtualServiceDesigner.exe.config.

In the following section of the file, set SV.Encryption.Version value to 1.

<!-- Allows to choose encryption version. Should be kept empty unless really needed.
        Empty - use most recent version
        1 - version used before SV 3.70; can be used for instance when project is used in integration scenario 
            by old versions of LR/UFT (before 12.50); does not work with FIPS!
        2 - introduced in SV 3.70, works with FIPS
   -->
   <add key="SV.Encryption.Version" value="" />
