Dell EMC OpenManage Enterprise Version 3.5 User's Guide

Deploy OpenManage Enterprise on VMware vSphere

NOTE To perform any tasks on OpenManage Enterprise, you must have necessary user privileges. See Role-based OpenManage Enterprise user privileges.
NOTE If a secondary adapter is added before powering on the appliance for the first time, the adapter will be configured with IPv4 and IPv6 disabled. Upon login to the TUI, and after accepting the EULA and changing the admin password, the adapter will show up as DISABLED and must be configured by the user.
  1. Download the file from the support site and extract the file to a location accessible by VMware vSphere Client. It is recommended to use a local drive or CD/DVD, because installing from a network location can take up to 30 minutes.
  2. In vSphere Client, select File > Deploy OVF Template.
    The Deploy OVF Template wizard is displayed.
  3. On the Source page, click Browse, and then select the OVF package. Click Next.
  4. On the OVF Template Details page, review the information that is displayed. Click Next.
  5. On the End User License Agreement page, read the license agreement and click Accept. To continue, click Next.
  6. On the Name and Location page, enter a name with up to 80 characters, and then select an inventory location where the template will be stored. Click Next.
  7. Depending on the vCenter configuration, one of the following options is displayed:
    • If resource pools are configured — On the Resource Pool page, select the pool of virtual servers to deploy the appliance VM.
    • If resource pools are NOT configured — On the Hosts/Clusters page, select the host or cluster on which you want to deploy the appliance VM.
  8. If there are more than one datastores available on the host, the Datastore page displays such datastores. Select the location to store virtual machine (VM) files, and then click Next.
  9. On the Disk Format page, click Thick provision to pre-allocate physical storage space to VMs at the time a drive is created.
  10. On the Ready to Complete page, review the options you selected on previous pages and click Finish to run the deployment job.
    A completion status window displays where you can track job progress.
