IBMonitor Orchestrator is powered by Linux and it is distributed as a virtual machine image (Virtual Appliance OVA) that you can deploy on the virtualization platform of choice, e.g. VMWare ESX/ESXi or Virtualbox.
The Deploy OVF Template wizard appears.
Options: Deploy from file (Browse your file system for an OVF or OVA template.) or deploy from URL ex. http://ibsoft.com/ova/ibmonitor-orchestrator.ovf
Note: When the vSphere Client is connected directly to an ESX/ESXi host, the option to select the folder location does not appear.
Note: This page appears only if the OVF template contains deployment options.
Note: This page appears only if the destination is a resource pool associated with a cluster with DRS disabled or in manual mode.
Note: This page appears only if the cluster contains a resource pool.
Datastores are a unifying abstraction for storage locations such as Fibre Channel, iSCSI LUNs, or NAS volumes. On this page, you select from datastores already configured on the destination cluster or host. The virtual machine configuration file and virtual disk files are stored on the datastore. Select a datastore large enough to accommodate the virtual machine and all of its virtual disk files
Options: Thin Provisioned (The storage is allocated on demand as data is written to the virtual disks) and Thick Provisioned (All storage is immediately allocated.).
Note: Here you have three options: Fixed (You will be prompted to enter the IP addresses in the Appliance Properties page.) Transient (IP addresses are allocated from a specified range when the appliance is powered on. The IP addresses are released when the appliance is powered off.) DHCP (A DHCP server is used to allocate the IP addresses.)
Note: This page does not appear if the deployed OVF template does not contain information about the IP scheme it supports.
Same installation procedure with the vSphere Web Client.
Depending on your network speed, this deployment can take 15 minutes or more.
Login in to your IBMonitor Orchestartor for the first time.
First of all you can change the default IP address to match your network, and then restart your networking services.
Configure your /etc/hosts file according to your needs.
Configure your firewall log reports email file according to your needs.
Change you location settings for google maps open VPN monitor Lat/Long.
Re-Configure your named server according to your needs and network. DNS is needed if you are using remote vpn clients. (example)
If you are planning to use OpenVPN remote nodes login to Orchestrator and run the easy gencert command. Then go to IBMonitor Client menu Administration->IBMonitor Operations->OVPN Certificates to download them and install them in your remote nodes
OpenVPN server configuration file might need some tuning too.
You are now ready to install IBMonitor Client and start adding some windows Agents.
