• VMware vCenter Server v5.x
  • ESX server capable of running the appliance with 2GB vRAM
  • IP address for the appliance (DHCP supported)

  1. Configuring the vCenter runtime settings
    1. Administration > vCenter Server Settings from the menu. Click the Runtime Settings tab. The runtime settings allow running multiple vCenter Servers in the same environment
    2. Provide the following runtime settings:

      1. Managed IP address: The vCenter Server system IP address 

      2. Name: The fully qualified domain-name of the cVenter Server system 

        Inserting an invalid vCenter Server system IP address results in an incomplete installation

    1. Download the appliance from our package repository
    2. Open the vCenter client and select File > Deploy OVF Template from the menu

    3. On the Source pane, browse to the installation file that you downloaded on Step 1 above

    5. Review the details on the OVF Template Details pane and click Next

    6. Review the Name and Location of Host PowerTools for VMware. Click Next

    7. Select a host, or cluster on which the template will be deployed

    8. Select between thick and thin provisioning formats, all supported by Infinidat

    9. Click Next on the Service Binding screen

    10. Review a summary of the deployment settings and click Finish
