Install vCenter Server Essentials Plus mode 5.1 Appliance

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 21st on November 2012

Installation vCenter Server Essentials Plus mode 5.1 Appliance It is very simple.

We assume that we have already licensed the product and in this case will be one of the Essentials Plus packs which they are designed for small businesses that are starting to migrate physical servers to virtual and do not want to invest heavily in virtualization products, but want to reduce costs on physical servers.

In large corporations we can also use safely since for example for a small delegation with few users work seamlessly us and we can save money that will be very useful to devote to a good disk array.

If you want to see the differences between the different versions of the product you can see the following:

If you want to see the official prices between different product versions you can consult the following link:

This time for the item we have chosen the product version Appliance Virtual Center mode which we discussed earlier in this blog, the only difference in this product is installed when the license instead of being a product license is the new standard license acquired Essentials product. As simple as this.

We got installing vCenter Essentials Appliance mode instead of Windows mode because we saved the cost of the Windows license and can use to improve the cabin again ...

Essentials Plus It meets all our needs vSphere High Availability, vSphere vMotion, vSphere Storage Appliance, Among others, and we will not integrate into the cluster hosts over 3 2 or more sockets per host so we will adjust this license perfect for our environment and not have to toil away more money than necessary. It is cheaper even if we had already installed a vCenter. The only downside is that require a new installation of vCenter Essentials Plus because it is not compatible with vCenter and could not include the machines within the corporate infrastructure of Virtual Center.

The steps to provide a vCenter Server Essentials Plus mode 5.1 Appliance They are as follows:

1.- Install vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 in mode.

How to install a license on a Virtual Center

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 14th on November 2012

In this article we show how to install VMware licenses in a Virtual Center environment.

What we will do is tap a previous article where we explained as install y set up vCenter Server Appliance Mode 5.1 and thus complete the installation of the license necessary for the system has greater functionality than 60 days is the term they give us free until we buy a product license vCenter and can use it for life.

We recall that once bought a license VMware is not necessary to be renewing the license every year unless of course we want to update the product or as VMware calls it (make an update version) does not mean putting on patches but increase the versioning for example when moving from one ESX 3.5 4 to, or a 4 5.1 to, etc ... I guess you know what I mean.

This article aims to explain the steps to be followed to introduce a license to a Virtual Center environment.

I hope you find it useful, and although simple, many of you sure helps you see with screen shots.

Please write to any comments if you have any questions or want to contribute knowledge to other blog readers.

Greetings and enjoy the reading.

Configure vCenter Server Appliance Mode 5.1

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 14th on November 2012

This article is the second part of the article Install vCenter Server Appliance Mode 5.1.

In the previous article we explain how to install vCenter Server 5.1 in Appliance mode, a system that does not require the installation of a Windows server as a base because it has a system based on a distribution of SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 (64-bit) own operating system .

In the previous article we were at the end of the installation from an OVF into ESXi environment, prepared from a dynamic IP (DHCP) by which through a web environment we could connect us to continue with this article that explains how to configure vCenter Server 5.1 when it installed in Appliance mode.

We hope you reading is helpful and we let any comments about it so that we can help you as much as possible.

We will configure the basic settings of this tool, user and password, database, network configuration and we will start automatically services to enjoy a vSphere Client connection 5.1 to this virtual environment.
