Step 2: Register NSX-V vCenter in GigaVUE-FM

There is a one-to-one mapping between vCenters and NSX-V Managers. Both the vCenter registered with the NSX-V Manager and the NSX-V Manager must be added to GigaVUE-FM.

When the NSX-V Manager is registered in GigaVUE-FM, it registers the Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service in NSX-V as a Network Introspection Service. The Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service is used to install GigaVUE-VM Service Virtual Machines and define profiles for forwarding traffic to the GigaVUE visibility fabric.

To add the vCenter to GigaVUE-FM, do the following:

1.   From the left navigation pane, select Inventory > VIRTUAL > VMware > vCenter > Management. The Management page appears.
2. In the Virtual Center tab, click Add. The Add Virtual Center page displays.
3. On the Add Virtual Center page, do the following:
o   In the Virtual Center field, Enter the DNS name or IP address of the vCenter server.
o   In the Username field, enter the VMware vCenter username that has a minimum of the Read Only role or higher.
o   In the Password field, enter the password for vCenter.
4. Click Save.
