Welcome to Part 5: Agent, Endpoint, and Group Configuration
You should have completed Part 1-4:
During the vCAC Complete Install process, we already installed a vSphere agent. We need to create "Agents" or workers that know how to talk to specific endpoints. There are a few different types of agents and each one has similar installation procedures. The links below will take you to official VMware documentation. We are going to go over the Proxy Agent Configuration for vSphere for configuring the IaaS components.
- Proxy Agent for vSphere
- Proxy Agent for Hyper-V
- Proxy Agent for XenServer
- VDI Agent for XenDesktop
- EPI Agent for Citrix
- EPI Agent for Visual Basic Scripting
- WMI Agent for Remote WMI Tasks for Windows Machines
The vSphere agent/endpoint here is a "vCenter" instance. If you have more than 1 vCenter, then you need to install an additional vSphere Agent on the IaaS Components VM. There is a 1:1 mapping. To install an additional vSphere Agent, scroll to the bottom of this blog post. During the deployment in Step 3 we either kept the name "vCenter" or changed it to the actual name of vCenter during this screen. This name will be used again here.
