Over the last couple of releases we have been moving more features from the VMAN Appliance to the to the Orion platform with the goal of making feature changes and net new features on the Orion platform. With the release of 6.2 we continued by moving over all Out-of-the-Box alerting and reporting to Orion and included virtual management actions and appstack integration on the Orion platform only. The date view of VMAN on Orion is handled through the web browser location setting automatically. If you do not have VMAN integrated with SAM or NPM then we do have a stand alone Orion implementation specifically for VMAN integration that is available in the customer portal.
Moving forward as we improve on existing features and add all new features you will see these changes happen on the Orion platform as we work to provide a "single pane of glass" along the Solarwinds product line.
Can I please get a free Orion NPM license so that I can make use of the VMAN integration? I don't wish to pay for NPM just so I can get a proper date format displayed in VMAN.
I'll provide the Windows license for the new server that Orion NPM gets installed on. Fair trade?
I agree you shouldn't have to pay for NPM just to get Orion integration features so for the 6.2 release we started to provide a standalone Orion for VMAN customers so that SAM or NPM is no longer required for integration. Message me if you have any issues downloading the Orion module.
Unfortunately there is no way how to accomplish this at the moment. We will discuss if this feature could be added in some of the future versions or not. Thank you for understanding
Could you please ask the current PM to provide some useful input in this matter. I don't understand how a necessity like this falls under the "feature" category.
Is Virtualization Manager not sold outside of the US?
This is high on our priority list for a future release. I understand this is frustrating but there is no way to do this at this time. Happy to jump on a call and discuss with you further.
We were looking at it for the last release, but with schedule pressure, it ended up getting pushed. We are still looking at adding this for a future release. I noticed that there was no Idea Forum requests for this item, so I went ahead and created one so that other VMan customers could vote for this. http://thwack.solarwinds.com/ideas/2679
Thanks for creating the idea request but this has me confused.
Does this mean that it is no longer high on your priority list for a future release, but instead, dependent on whether people vote for it or not?
No, it is not necessarily dependent on whether or not people vote on it. This feature is being considered with all other high priority issues for consideration in the next release. I created the request to raise it's visibility, but Thwack Idea Forum requests are only one source out of many input channels that are used to drive product direction. Hope that clarifies.
It's almost a year since we last touched on this subject and nearing two years since it has been brought up.
Just updated to 6.1.1 and am looking for the date format settings but can't find it. Did it make it to this release?
Bump. It's ridiculous to sell a product internationally and not allow for something as basic as the localisation/customisation of the datetime.
Is there any update?
