HP uCMDB 10.x and VMware Vcenter integration

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I am trying to discover some physical machines which have VMware ESX running on them. From discovery and integration manual I read that i could do this separetly with the following jobs: Host connections by Shell, Host Applications by Shell, VMware ESX Connection by VIM and VMware ESX Topology by VIM. But is there a possibility to use Integration Studio to connect to VMware vcenter and get that data from there? If yes, which adapter should i use? Also, is it possible to manually make VMware ESX CI-s and run the VMware ESX Connection by VIM and VMware ESX Topology by VIM jobs on that CI ?

UCMDB is highly customable product. So, potentially anything could be done.

The OTTB implementation of retriving the data from vCenter is discovery.

 

Could you please explain your point why integration is somehow better for you than discovery?

VMware ESX Connection by VIM and VMware ESX Topology by VIM is the way to go.

Why you want to do this with Integartion Studio and not with discovery?

For Host connections by Shell to work, I need a SSH user with admin rights and a "hole" in the firewall. My administrator would like to avoid this. So I am trying to figure out an alternative way to discover the VMware ESX machines. 

 

What are the alternatives?

You can manually install UD agent on ESX. This will give you an option to run "*by Shell" without credentials.

You'll need "hole(s)" in firewall in any case.

As I am fairly new to uCMDB, I want to learn as many possibilities to know their advantages and to use the best solution based on the experience.
