UCMDB Support Tip: How to Install the JAR Files Using Management Zones

1.     Download the VMware Infrastructure SDK from:  http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vc-sdk/.

 

On this page [http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vc-sdk/] one needs to select the proper version of SDK, e. g. 5.5.  After selecting the version the 'Download' link should appear right after the date of the release. Use this link to download the SDK mentioned.  One may be required to login to VMware site.

 

2.     Extract the files to a local folder. For example: C:\VMware-vSphere-SDK.

 

Install the jar files through an Inventory Discovery Activity. One may either create a new Inventory Discovery Activity, or edit an existing one.

 

3.     Create a new Inventory Discovery Activity:

 

a.     Go to Data Flow Management > Universal Discovery > Zone Based Discovery > Management Zones.

b.    Select the appropriate Management Zone.

c.     Click the button and select New Discovery Activity > Inventory.

        The New Inventory Discovery Activity dialog box appears.

d.    Create the activity and activate it by following the online prompts through the activity wizard. On the Virtualization page, you must:

i.     Select Include virtualization topology.

ii.    Under Discovery Options, select VMware SDK libraries.

iii.   Click Import file The Import file dialog box appears.

iv.   Two choices: Axis or JAX-WS Libraries. If unsure, select JAX-WS. Select the files to import as follows:

 

*  If one wants to use the Axis libraries, go to the vsphere-ws\java\Axis folder (for example: C:\VMware-vSphere-SDK\vsphere-ws\java\Axis) and select vim.jar and vim25.jar.

 

Note: The Axis libraries are not included in VMware Infrastructure SDK version 5.x and later.

 

*  If one wants to use the JAX-WS libraries, go to the vsphere-ws\java\JAXWS\lib folder (for example: C:\VMware-vSphere-SDK\vsphere-ws\java\JAXWS\lib) and select vim25.jar.

c.     Select the existing Inventory Discovery Activity.
