Cisco ISE supports both thick and thin provisioning. However, we recommend that you choose thick provisioning for better performance, especially for Monitoring nodes. If you choose thin provisioning, operations such as upgrade, backup and restore, and debug logging that require more disk space might be impacted during initial disk expansion.

Before you install a 64-bit system, ensure that Virtualization Technology (VT) is enabled on the ESXi server. You must also ensure that your guest operating system type is set to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (64-bit). • For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the default NIC type is VMXNET3 Adapter. You can add up to four NICs for your Cisco ISE virtual machine, but ensure that you choose the same Adapter for all the NICs.
