Hey there, KBTV fans!
Today we have two new videos for your viewing pleasure. In these videos we discuss and demonstrate how to install the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server and the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager plug-in for the vSphere Client.
In the first of these two videos, we focus on the process for installing the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server.
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.
Before installing, ensure that these prerequisites are met:
- You have an account with administrator privileges on the vCenter Server system.
- The Windows Remote Management service is running and configured on the vCenter Server machine and on the machine where you install the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server.
- Your user account has sufficient rights to install the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package. The vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager installer initiates the installation of the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package.
- (If you want to use a custom certificate for vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager) You have all the necessary certification authorities in the Trusted Root Certification Authority on the system where you want to install the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server.
