    Installing EminentWare Provider on virtualbox

    SolarWinds Community Team

      Is it possible to manually install the EminentWare Provider on a windows install.

      I currently run Linux on my laptop and I have virtualbox running my windows environment.  I'm not really sure how to get the provider installed on my virtual windows machine.  Can this be done manually?  Or would it even work if I were to get it installed.

       

      Thanks

      Jeff

          Hi Jeff,

           

          You can definitely install the provider manually.  To locate the .msi package, look in the filesystem on the EminentWare server in the following directory (assuming the default install path): C:\program files\eminentware\server\packages\eminentware.  In that directory, you'll see a file like wmiproviders_1.40.126.msi.  That is the WMI provider and you can move it to wherever and just double-click it to launch the install.

           

          Now, I have no idea if it will run with virtualbox, as I'm not familiar with that.  I can tell you that we have a number of clients using VMWare and VPC VMs with no problems.
