Nerdio Manager for MSP is installed and billed through the Azure marketplace. The installation process generally takes five to 10 minutes, and can be broken down in to three phases:
- Install NMM application from Marketplace listing
- Continue installation with an Azure CloudShell script
- Register your install with our licensing server
- Log in to Azure portal as Global Admin and Subscription Owner
Phase I - Install from Marketplace Listing
To begin the installation process, go to Azure Marketplace, search for "Nerdio Manager for MSP", and click the "Get it now" button to start the installation process.
You may be required to log in to Azure Marketplace with you Microsoft account if you are not already.
Click Continue button and you will be redirected to Azure portal.
Important: you must be logged in to Azure portal as a Global Admin and Subscription Owner of Azure subscription where you will install NMM.
Click the Create button.
On the next screen, you'll select the subscription and resource group for the application. The "Project details" section determines the resource group that the billing object will reside in. We recommend creating a new resource group for this.
The "Managed Application Details" section determines the resource group that will contain the resources created for the NMM application, such as the app service, SQL Server instance, etc.

The deployment of the Azure resources will begin, and will take 3-5 minutes. Phase I is complete.
Phase II - Run Azure CloudShell script
Once the deployment is finished, find the app service by searching for "App Services" or by opening the Resource Group created by NMM. The app service will be called "web-admin-portal-<xxxxx>"
Click on the app service, find the URL associated with the app service and open it in a browser tab.
The web page shows a PowerShell command, which you will copy and then paste into an Azure Cloud Shell session. First copy the command and then click the "Launch Azure Cloud Shell" button.
If needed, select PowerShell (not Bash) and create a storage account for the shell history.
Paste the PowerShell command and hit enter to run it.
The script will take about five minutes to install and configure the NMM application on the app service. Phase II is now done.
Phase III - Register your install
When the script has finished, return to the app service URL and reload the page. Consent to allow the app the required permissions.
Important: Check the box "Consent on behalf of your organization"
Provide your registration details and register your NMM install.
You will now see the main NMM interface:
