    Solarwinds Storage Manager - Ok to install on a VM? Namely vCenter?

      Hello,

       

      I was hoping to install Storage Manager on a VM, namely on my vCenter Server. is this a good idea? Will this work?

          Hi danblee,

           

          Storage Manager Server and Agents can be installed on VM's; however, I would not recommend installing it on your vCenter server or any other heavily used production server like Orion.


          Choosing between a physical and virtual server for the Storage Manager install really comes down to the size of your planned deployment. Can you elaborate on what your planning on monitoring and I can help give you some recommendations?
