Install VIM in standalone mode and integrate VMAN
You can integrate VMAN with the Orion Platform. If you do not have an existing Orion Platform, SolarWinds provides a standalone version called Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (VIM). These instructions walk through installing VIM and integrating the VMAN appliance.
Before you begin, make sure your computer meets the Orion recommended requirements for VMAN.
VIM 7.1 includes Orion Platform 2016.2. If you install SAM 6.4, you also receive VIM 7.1 and do not need to install VIM 7.1.

If you need the installation file VMAN-Orion-Install-2nd.exe, login to the Customer Portal and download the full version of the VMAN installation. The zip contains this file.
|Save and run the file on the Orion Platform server||
|Complete the Configuration Wizard||
|Log in to the Web Console||Log in to the SolarWinds Web Console as an administrator. Until you change your account, you can log in with the username, Admin without a password.|
|Open Virtualization Settings||
Click Settings > All Settings > Virtualization Settings > Setup Virtualization Manager Integration.
|Configure connections for the VMAN appliance||
The Orion Web Console verifies access and integrates VMAN and monitored VMs. Click My Dashboard > Virtualization to access VMAN data and options.
