With VMAN 8.0 and later, VMAN recommends new installations using the single deployment of VMAN with the Orion Platform or into an existing Orion Platform environment. Once installed with an activated license, a fresh installation automatically has fully integrated features for VMAN directly within the Orion Platform.

For existing customers upgrading to 8.0 and later, VMAN supports an installation of the VMAN appliance with integration into a stand-alone or existing Orion Platform. In this deployment, you have a deployed appliance with a secondary license, a primary license in the Orion Platform, and integration completed for VMAN in the Orion Web Console.

For extensive details, architecture diagrams, and information for installing and upgrading VMAN, see the following guides:

  • VMAN Installation Guide: details fresh, new installations of VMAN as a stand-alone application or into an existing Orion Platform. Both installations include a full implementation of the Orion Platform. This guide may also include links and information to the Orion Installer Guide.
  • VMAN Upgrade Guide: details how to upgrade VMAN, including existing versions.

To fully poll and monitor virtual environments, VMAN must be installed and activated. For Orion Platform environments with VMAN recently installed or upgraded, you may need to run the Synchronization wizard. This wizard verifies the activated VMAN product, virtual systems (VMs, hosts, clusters, and datastores), and updates all resources in the Orion Web Console with monitored metrics. For details and instructions, see Synchronize VMAN entities with the Synchronization wizard.

Did you use VMAN previously? In versions of VMAN 7.2 and earlier, you may have had two licenses and two installations for a full VMAN product solution. With VMAN 8.0 and later, you receive one installation and license to provide full access to VMAN and the Orion Platform.
