Overview

This article describes the steps to integrate Virtualization Manager with an existing Orion Platform including products like NPM, SAM, NCM, and so on.

For detailed instructions for installing Virtual Infrastructure Monitor and integration, see Install VIM and integrate VMAN with an existing Orion Platform. Depending on your Orion Platform versions, you may need to also install VIM as part of the integration. VIM comes with your VMAN installation files.

Environment

  • Orion NPM 12.2 and Orion VIM 8.0 and VMAN 8.0
  • Orion NPM 12.1 and Virtualization Manager 7.0 and 7.1

    You must install VIM 7.1 with this integration on the Orion Server to fully access updated features for VMAN 7.1. If you have SAM 6.4, you do not need to install VIM 7.1. NPM 12.1 comes with VIM 7.0. SAM 6.4 comes with VIM 7.1.

  • Orion NPM 12.0.1, SAM 6.3 and Virtualization Manager 7.0
  • Orion NPM 12.0.0, SAM 6.2.4 and Virtualization manager 7.0
  • Orion NPM 11.5.2 and Virtualization manager 6.3
  • Orion NPM 11.5.1 and Virtualization manager 6.2
  • Orion NPM 11.0.1 and Virtualization manager 6.1

  2. Click Settings > Virtualization Settings.
  3. Click Setup Virtualization Manager Integration.
  4. In the Server name or IP address field, enter either the IP address, hostname, or FQDN of the Virtualization Manager server.
  5. In the Port field, retain the default value (443) . You can change this if you have replaced the HTTPS port on the Virtualization Manager.
  6. Provide your Virtualization Manager Admin credentials (this is the admin credentials that you use to login on the VMAN application web console).
  7. Click Submit.

 

After the integration. You will need to synchronize VMAN on your Orion server:

 

  1. On the Orion web console. Go to Settings>'All settings' then under 'Product specific settings' go to 'Virtualization settings'.
