VMware vCenter

You can install the VMware vCenter integration to enable Moogsoft Enterprise to collect event data from one or more vCenter systems.

When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties. If you want to implement a more complex vCenter LAM with custom settings, see Configure the vCenter LAM.

See the vCenter documentation for details on vCenter components.

Before You Begin

The VMware vCenter integration has been validated with vCenter v6.0, v6.5, and v6.7. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements for each vCenter system:

  • You have the hostname or the IP address of the vCenter instance.

  • You have credentials to connect to vCenter.

Configure the vCenter Integration

To configure the vCenter integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click VMware vCenter in the Monitoring section.

  3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

  4. Provide connection details for your vCenter system.

Configure vCenter

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your vCenter systems. After you configure the integration, it polls vCenter at regular intervals to collect event data (every 60 seconds by default).
