When you launch VMAN 8.0 for the first time, you are dropped into the VMAN integration console.

Do not use the Setup Virtualization Manager Integration wizard. This step is not necessary for VMAN 8.0. Instead, cancel out of the Virtualization Manager Integration screen, and add the polling entities manually.

Add the vSphere vCenter server

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > Add Node.

  2. Enter the host name or IP address of the vCenter server in the Polling Hostname or IP Address field.
  3. Under Polling Method, select Status Only: ICMP.
  4. Select the checkbox for Poll for VMware.
  5. Enter your vCenter credentials in the vCenter or ESX credentials field.

  6. Click Next.
  7. Click Add Node.

    When the vCenter server is added successfully, VMAN begins polling.

Add the Hyper-V host

  1. Click Settings > All Settings > Add Node.
  2. Enter the host name or IP address of the vCenter server in the Polling Hostname or IP Address field.
