Hyper-V nodes, VMware vCenter, ESX servers, and virtual machines which you want to monitor must be added to the SolarWinds Orion database.

Add the nodes using Network Sonar Discovery.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console as an administrator.
  2. Launch Network Discovery in the Orion Web Console through Settings > Network Discovery > Add New Discovery.
  3. On the Virtualization page, select Poll for VMware, and if the vCenter or ESX Credentials are not listed, add them.
  4. On the Windows page, add Windows credentials for accessing Hyper-V nodes.
  5. Complete the wizard and import the results.
