Vitualizaton Manager (VMAN) Installation Guide

Updated June 1, 2017

Supported Version: VMAN 7.2/VIM 7.1 and earlier


Maintaining a virtual or hybrid environment requires using native tools to review mountains of data. Virtual machines allow companies to exponentially expand and scale environments far cheaper and faster than adding physical systems. The ease of expansions can lead to sprawling environments with numerous clusters and hosts, under or over allocated resources, and difficulties in finding and understanding the metrics needed to manage VMs effectively.


Virtualization Manager provides intensive metrics gathering and data breakdowns into dashboards and details pages so you can easily evaluate environments and react to issues. Use VMAN to manage your sprawling VM virtual and cloud environment through a single console with account management and direct VM tool capabilities.


Use this guide for your stand-alone, integrated Orion Platform, and evaluation installs.
