Configure GigaVUE V Series Nodes using VMware ESXi
You can use your own VMware ESXi host system to deploy GigaVUE V Series nodes and use GigaVUE-FM to configure the advanced features supported by these nodes. These nodes register themselves with GigaVUE-FM using the information provided by the user in the virtual machine creation wizard. Once the nodes are registered with GigaVUE-FM, you can configure monitoring sessions and related services in GigaVUE-FM.
This section describes how to deploy GigaVUE V Series Nodes under AnyCloud Monitoring Domain using VMware ESXi Host.
The nodes will be deployed under the Monitoring Domain created in AnyCloud.
