    Use Nimble vCenter Plug-in to Centrally Manage Multiple VMware Datacenters

    Jim Kruse Newbie

      I have several locations in my environment. Each location currently has a Nimble and dedicated vCenter.

       

      I would like to use one vCenter server to manage all of my remote locations.

       

      Is it possible to manage multiple Nimble arrays in different locations from one central vCenter server with the plug-in?

          Jim,

           

          Yes, Plugin for Nimble arrays in different locations can be registered with a central vCenter server. However, note that the plugin tab for the array would appear for every datacenter in vCenter.

           

          In release 2.2, an enhancement to the list of RBAC privileges that the plugin adds to the vCenter server can be used to create custom roles. This is useful if you have remote administrators that have permissions to a specific datacenters in vCenter and that they should see the plugin tab only for the array in that datacenter/remote location.
