Managing a Nutanix Prism

eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover a Nutanix Prism. This means that you have to manually add a Prism using the eG admin interface. The steps to achieve this are as follows:

  1. Login to the eG admin interface.
  2. From the Infrastructure tile of the Admin tile menu, select the Components -> Add/Modify option.

  3. If the Prism that you want to monitor is a Prism Central, then, against Host IP/Name, specify the IP address using which the Prism was installed and configured.

    On the other hand, if the Prism that you want to monitor is a Prism Element, then, against Host IP/Name, specify the cluster IP address that is configured for communicating with the cluster that is managed by that Prism Element.

  4. Provide a Nick name for the Prism and enter the Port number at which the Prism listens. By default, the port will be 9440.
  5. By default, eG Enterprise monitors the Prism in an Agentless manner only.
  6. Set the OS as Nutanix and the Mode as Other.
  7. Pick a Remote Agent and an External Agent for the Nutanix Prism, and click on Add button to add the Prism for monitoring.
