mad question, but not the easiest to find and answer for without going to SW for help... so starting here...
i have recently added patch manager, virtualisation manager and storage manager to my list of SolarWinds purchases. they are not installed yet.... i use the suite of tools centrally, to monitor and manage customers remotely over lines, VPNs etc... the question is, with these tools, i need a local presence on the customer site as it is a big one, and these tools are a little different to what I am used to with the NPM suite.
- in my central data centre, I will install the parent storage manager, virtualisation manager and patch manager. I want to install a server into the customer (an VM) but I do not want to install 3 server VMs. Is there a remote collector agent for virtualisation and storage manager products? If so, can they both be installed onto the same windows server? and then, can both of those be installed onto a Patch manager application/automation role server?
