About the virtualization technologies supported

Veritas Operations Manager supports the following virtualization technologies:

For VMware ESX discovery, a designated Control Host discovers the VMware vCenter Server in the data center. This discovery displays those ESX servers that VMware vCenter Server manages and the virtual machines that are configured on the ESX servers.

For Solaris Zones discovery, the zone agentlet that is present in the VRTSsfmh package, which is installed on a Solaris managed host, discovers the Global zones that are configured on the host. This discovery displays the non-Global zones that are configured on the Global Zone.

For Sun LDoms discovery, the LDom agentlet that is present in the VRTSsfmh package, which is installed on a Solaris managed host, discovers the LDom Server that is configured on the host. This discovery displays the LDom clients that are configured on the LDom Server.

For logical partition (LPAR) discovery, Veritas Operations Manager can use Hardware Management Console (HMC), a VRTSsfmh package that is installed on the LPAR client, or a VRTSsfmh package installed as a part of DMP on the VIO server. Control Host is required for the HMC discovery.

For Microsoft Hyper-V discovery, Veritas Operations Manager discovers Hyper-V server (with VRTSsfmh package on it), and its correlation with the Hyper-V virtual machines. It also discovers the storage that is provisioned to the guests and its correlation with the virtual machine and the Hyper-V server. The Hyper-V guest, when added (using agent or agentless option) to Veritas Operations Manager Management Server domain, provides storage mapping discovery.

For Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) discovery, Veritas Operations Manager discovers KVM virtual machines on the Linux host if the KVM modules are installed, and configured on the virtualization server (KVM Server). Veritas Operations Manager discovers basic information about KVM virtual machines. For example, virtual machine name, CPU, and so on.
