Hi all,

Does EBS (Messaging, Managing, Gateway) Need to be run on three physical servers, or can it be run on one physical server?

    You can have it all on one , but it better be a very powerful server.

    No need to run in a virtual environment.
    Have a look at this System REquirement page (if you haven't yet so) and see what hardware you need.

    Also a FAQ section that gives you a lot of usful info.

    Remember EBS only comes in 64-bit so make sure your server hardware meets this requirement. Also make sure you have plenty disk space on the server. From reading I think it requires at least 100Gb just for the system components so I guess that is why EBS can be installed on different servers.
