ACS 5.0 is available in the 1120 appliance and as software for WMware ESX 3.5. There is no more windows support, it runs a specific linux build. It's a completly different product than ACS 4.x that was running on windows server.

I tried to install ACS 5.0 on our ESX 3.5 with less than 500GB disk space and it doesn't work. Our maximum LUN size we can allocate is 100GB. Is there a possibility to get it working?

Hi Stephan,

I've seen couple of cases where ACS 5.0 installation failed with less than 500GB hard-disk space. This is minimum requirement for installing ACS 5.0 on virtual machine ESX 3.5.

Even if you able to install it on less than 500 GB HD then also it will create problem in future so i won't recommend you to install it.
