Managing the VDI-in-a-Box on VMware vSphere

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the VDI in a Box / VMware so that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To manage a VDI in a Box / VMware component, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select VDI in a Box / VMware as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.

  4. Specify the Host IP/Name and the Nick name of the VDI in a Box / VMware in Figure 1. Then click on the Add button to register the changes.
  5. Next, when you try to signout of the eG administrative interface, a list of unconfigured tests will appear as shown in Figure 2.

  1. Click on any test in the list of unconfigured tests.
  2. Now when you try to signout of the admin interface, you will be prompted to configure a list of tests. Try to configure the Disk Activity – VM test as shown in Figure 2.
  3. To know more on how to configure the Disk Activity – VM test, Refer to the Monitoring VMware Infrastructures document.
  4. Finally, you will be prompted to configure the HTTP test when you try to signout of the eG administrative interface. Refer to the Monitoring VDI in a Box document to know more about how to configure the HTTP test.
  5. With that, test configuration is complete and the VDI in a BOX / VMware is finally ready to be monitored.

Note:

You can configure and monitor the VDI in a Box / XenServer and VDI in a Box / Hyper-V models using the same procedure as discussed above for the VDI in a Box / VMware.
