Yeah, noob question...
We have IVIM 2.1.1, NPM 11.5.3, SAM 6.2.3, etc and the VMAN appliance. I have integrated them.
There are places to enter ESX credentials in iVIM/Orion and on the appliance.
After reading the Admin Guide, I'm still not clear...
Where do I add the credentials to? To I have to do both sides? Are credentials shared between Orion and the Appliance?
Add the credentials in the VMAN appliance. When you integrate with Orion it will use the VMAN credentials. Service release 2 for VMAN and VIM resolve some of the integration issues that were occurring when admins configured both virtual devices and credentials on the appliance and VIM.
