Hi All,

Peter is correct the VMAN appliance by itself can not monitor hardware health but when you integrate with Orion you get access to hardware health , perfstack, recommendations, appstack, improved reporting and Alerting, etc. 

You can integrate with NPM or SAM but if you prefer a standalone VMAN instance the VMAN download zip includes the Orion stand-alone Orion install which is used to integrate to the VMAN appliance without SAM or NPM.

If i prefer a standalone VMAN then i would still need two separate servers for installing VIM and the DB server, right? And then integrate the VMAN instance with VIM server.

That is correct, VMAN 8 RC is right around the corner and will allow for a single install with the VMAN pollers in Orion.  So, in this case, you would just need have the single install

that would be fantastic... great to hear that....

Once VMAN 8.0 is available yes, the VMAN installer will be similar to SRM, NPM, & SAM.

VMAN appliance is not able to monitor Hardware Health.

If you have VMAN integrated with VIM in Orion:

+ you need license on VIM/SAM
