Deploy vRealize Network Insight on VCF4

Jump to solution

Hi guys

How would you deploy vRealize Network Insight on VCF4.2?

Should I just upload the binaries using vRealize LCM or do I need to do this through the SDDC Manager? As I noticed there is a sync between the binaries of SDDC and LCM.

I guess the platform goes in the cross region and the proxy in the region specific segment?

Thx.

I should clarify! 

 

By manual I mean the binaries need to be imported into vrlcm and then can be deployed through it.  Where as for the other products, SDDC Manager repo pulls them down and syncs them into vrlcm.

Hi,

The VCF 4.2 FAQ says that vRNI is still a manual deployment, so I think we need to just deploy it with vRealize LCM and connect it to vCenter/NSX-T Manager. In VCF 3.10 we deployed all the appliances in the cross region segment, but I can't find the docs regarding this right now.

Network insight is a manual deployment.  Vrli, vrops and vra are handled through vrlcm.

Shank, so it is not supported to deploy and upgrade vRNI via vRealize LCM when using VCF? Does it have to be completely manual?

Thx for the replies.

I was actually more concerned were I needed to upload the vRNI binaries because of the synced depot between SDDC and LCM.

In the meantime I already added the vRNI binaries by using vLCM. This now allows me to deploy vRNI from within vLCM.

I missed some replies while posting my own answer 🙂

Here is a screenshot of the imported binaries in LCM.
