Starting with VMAN 8.0, and continuing with 8.1  we've streamlined how you deploy and use VMAN.  Virtualization Manager 8.2 , the latest edition of these efforts, is now available on your Customer Portal.

 

One of the biggest pain points that surfaced over the last 2 releases was that the process for adding virtualization nodes to be monitored was not intuitive. This is solved with a new simplified workflow!

 

Whether choosing to add a Node or setting up a Discovery job, we've updated those entry points to direct you to the new, separate workflow.

 

Add a Node - Select VMware vCenter or Hyper-V devices
Network Discovery - Add VMware vCenter or Hyper-V devices
All Settings -  Add VMware vCenter or Hyper-V devices

 

Once you click on any of those entry points you'll be able to get started monitoring your environment with a few simple clicks.

 

Add a Virtual Object for Monitoring
See the thresholds that apply to your virtualization manager entities
Click Finish and you're successfully on your way to monitoring your virtualization environment

 

If you identified any thresholds that you'd like to tweak, simply navigate to All Settings -> Virtualization Settings to update your thresholds. Within a few clicks, you're ready to take advantage of capacity planning, recommendations and much more!
