Configure the Storage Manager installation details in Virtualization Manager

If you have SolarWinds Storage Manager installed, you can link data stores on the details page to open their corresponding Storage Manager web pages. If you do not have SolarWinds Storage Manager installed, you can leave these fields blank.

All NFS target volumes have links to the STM view, and all NFS target volume information is searchable. For example, if the target name is /vol/lab_Vcenter_41_NFS_Vol01, you can paste that string in the Search resource and filter based on it.

Provide the required information on the Storage Manager configuration page:

  • Network Address
    The IP address or host name of the Storage Manager server.
  • TCP Port
    The port used for the Storage Manager web server. The default port is 9000.
  • Storage Manager user name and password

Click Test to verify that you can connect to Storage Manager, and click Finish.

At the end of the Configuration Wizard, the Configuration Summary screen is displayed. This screen displays the data collection schedules that are in progress, and provides information about how the collections are performing.

When all collections are completed as scheduled, you can search for virtual machine data from the main interface.

To learn about searching for VM data, see Search for objects in Virtualization Manager.
