Installing the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager plug-in for the vSphere Client

In this second video, we discuss and demonstrate installing the vCenter Multi Hypervisor Manager server plug-in for the vSphere Client.

The vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server needs to be installed before you can use vCenter Server to manage 3rd-party hypervisors. You can install the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server on the same machine as vCenter Server if it runs on Windows or on a remote machine.

After you install the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server, you must install the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager plug-in for the vSphere Client. The vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager plug-in provides a separate inventory tree and management functionality for third-party hypervisors in the vSphere Client.

Before installing the plug-in, ensure that the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server has been installed first. For additional details, see the VMware Knowledge Base article Installing vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager best practices (2036700).
