Overview

This article addresses the issue where the option to add an instance of data source for a Vcenter, ESX or HyperV hosts is not available in the Data sources section of the VMAN application console.

Environment

VMAN 6 and later

Cause 

This occurs when credentials have not been added to VMAN for a Vcenter service account, ESX root account or HyperV host.

Resolution

  1. Log in to the VMAM application console.
  2. Go to Setup > Credentials.
  3. Add a credential for the Data source that you plan to monitor with VMAN. Tthis could be a Vcenter, ESX or HyperV host.
  4. Go to Setup > Data sources. The option will now be available.
  5. Verify that the collection jobs under the 'Collection Schedules' are enabled.
