Installing the Plug-in for VMware vCenter from the SnapCenter Server host by using PowerShell cmdlets

You should install the Plug-in for VMware vSphere from the SnapCenter GUI. If you do not want to use the GUI, you can use PowerShell cmdlets on the SnapCenter Server host to install the plug-in on the SnapCenter Server host or on a remote host.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. On the SnapCenter Server host, open the SM connection by using the Open-SmConnection command.
  2. Add a host by using the Add-SmHost command.
    This command adds the host where you want the Plug-in for VMware vSphere to be installed. The host can be the SnapCenter Server host or a dedicated host.
  3. Install the Plug-in for VMware vSphere by using the Install-SmHostPackage command.
    This command installs the Plug-in for VMware vSphere on the specified host, and then registers the plug-in on the specified vCenter. The host must be a Windows host.
