Deploying Unified Manager


Deploying Unified Manager includes downloading software, deploying the virtual appliance, creating a maintenance user name and password, and performing the initial setup in the web UI.

Before you begin

  • You must have completed the system requirements for deployment.

  • You must have the following information:

    • Login credentials for the NetApp Support Site

    • Credentials for accessing the VMware vCenter Server and vSphere Web Client (for vSphere version 6.5) or vSphere Client (for vSphere version 5.5 or 6.0)

    • IP address of the ESXi server on which you are deploying the Unified Manager virtual appliance

    • Details about the data center, such as storage space in the datastore and memory requirements

    • IPv6 must be enabled on the host if you are planning to use IPv6 addressing.

    • CD-ROM or ISO image of VMware Tools

About this task

You can deploy Unified Manager as a virtual appliance on a VMware ESXi server.

You must access the maintenance console by using the VMware console, and not by using SSH.

VMware Tools are not included in the Unified Manager.ova file, and must be installed separately.

After you finish

After finishing the deployment and initial setup, you can either add clusters, or configure additional network settings in the maintenance console, and then access the web UI.
