Task: Add a physical machine
- Use the + button to create a new physical machine. For example, for vCenter.
Select the hosts to add to Abiquo and configure them as described here.
- For each hypervisor host, you must enable a network interface (by assigning a Network Service Type). This is the network interface that is listening on VLANs.
- For each hypervisor host, you must enable at least one datastore (mark the checkbox). Do not enable the vm_repository for use as a datastore.
If necessary, edit the datastore to complete the configuration, for example, on KVM you may wish to add the datastore directory, such as var/lib/virt. Repeat the process of adding the physical machine for additional hypervisor hosts. Add the datastores to a datastore tier.
The platform can import VMs that were deployed before the machine was added to Abiquo. You can capture these VMs and manage them with Abiquo.
