In vRealize Network Insight Cloud, you can add your vCenter and NSX-T that are deployed in Azure VMware Solution (AVS).

Note: vRealize Network Insight Cloud does not support native Azure components that are attached to your AVS SDDC.

Configure Azure VMware Solution in vRealize Network Insight Cloud

To get insight about your vCenter Server and NSX-T that are deployed in Azure VMware Solution (AVS), you must add the vCenter and NSX-T in vRealize Network Insight Cloud.

Add vCenter Server

To add vCenter Server for Azure VMware Solution, you must use VMware Cloud (VMC) - VMware vCenter data source option in the UI. Ensure you have Cloud Administrator privilege.

  1. On the vRealize Network Insight Cloud UI, go to Settings > Accounts and Data Source > Add Source.
  2. Under VMware Cloud (VMC), click VMC - vCenter.
  3. In the Add a VMware Cloud (VMC) - VMware vCenter page, do the following:
    1. Select the Collector VM.
    2. Provide the vCenter FQDN/IP address.
    3. Provide the user credentials for your vCenter Server.
  4. Click Validate.
  5. Enter Nickname and Notes (Optional) for the data source and click SUBMIT.

Add NSX-T Manager

After you add vCenter Server, you must add NSX-T Manager. To know how to add NSX-T Manager, see Add VMware NSX-T Manager.
Note: When you add an NSX-T Manager data source for Azure VMware Solution in vRealize Network Insight Cloud, do not select the Enable latency metric collection check box. vRealize Network Insight Cloud does not support the latency collection metrics feature for Azure VMware Solution.

In case you have selected the Enable latency metric collection check box, you get NSX-T latency collector not configured alert. You can disable the alert or edit the NSX-T Manager data source and clear the Enable latency metric collection check box.

What to Do Next

Once the data collection starts, you can view the data source related information in vRealize Network Insight Cloud. To know about entity details, see Viewing Entity Details.
