My SAN guy is wanting us to install the EMC Navisphere Agent on our ESX 3.5 hosts. Is anyone using this and have any feedback?
I've been trying to find the compatibility doc from Vmware to see what is approved in the console but darned if I can find the thing.
See the attached pdf...this may be able to help you. You probably won't find much from VMWare about this...they generally don't like the 3rd party apps in the console, but I came across this several months ago...it was geared toward the 3.0.x versions I think, but may be of some use.
We are running navi on our hosts just fine...it was a simple client install and open of port 6389,tcp,in,naviagent in the esx firewall.
I've got Navisphere running on my ESX 3.5 hosts works a treat. I installed version 22 when my hosts were running 3.0.1 and then upgraded through 3.0.2 and up to 3.5 and had no problems. Recently upgraded it to 24, again with no problems.
Get the Linux package, it should come with a script called ESX_install.sh, run this to install it. I can't remember if I had to manually open the firewall port after or not - can someone else confirm?
I use navisphere agent on my esx 3.5 without problem. I use NAVIAGNTCLI-18.104.22.168.2_LINUX on a CX600 with 6.19 flare version and on cx3-20 with 6.24 flare version...It works fine.
In the past we installed the Naviagent when we were running 3.02. I always opened the firewall port 6389 to connect to our EMC CX700. The command was esxcfg-firewall -o 6389,tcp,in,EMC
If you use the ESX_install.sh, the script will ask you if it should open the necessary ports for you in the firewall, so
if you answer the Question with yes, you don´t need to open any ports in the firewall manually...
