Virtual Infrastructure Navigator with vSphere Web Client HA

January 31, 2012 1 comment

A little while ago I posted an article outlining a design that provides a solution for Scalability and High Availability for the vSphere Web Client in vSphere 5 for enterprise environments. Many of these enterprise environments that might want scalability for the vSphere Web Client may also be deploying the new vCenter Operations Manager 5 Suite, Enterprise Edition (or above), which includes Virtual Infrastructure Navigator. I’m pleased to report that so far my testing seems to suggest that both will integrate successfully. When I deployed VIN I needed to ensure it was on the same network as vCenter, else the asset wouldn’t appear in vCenter License section and I couldn’t apply the license or start the discoveries. If you haven’t seen or heard about vCenter Operations Manager 5 Suite yet I would encourage you to check it out.
