To get insight about your VMware vCenter Server, VMware NSX-T, and VMware HCX that are deployed in VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, you must add VMware vCenter Server, VMware NSX-T, and VMware HCX in vRealize Network Insight Cloud.

To add your VMware vCenter Server, VMware NSX-T, and VMware HCX that are deployed in VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, do the following:
Sl. No. Action Procedure
1 Generate a shared secret for adding a Collector Generate a Shared Secret
2 Deploy vRealize Network Insight Cloud Collector in VMware Cloud on Dell EMC Setting up Network Insight Collector (OVA)
Important:
  • Using a vRealize Network Insight Cloud collector deployed in one VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC to collect data from another VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC is not supported.
  • You must deploy the vRealize Network Insight Cloud collector on a native VMware Cloud on AWS segment. Deploying a collector on extended segments is not supported.
Note: Deploy a vRealize Network Insight Cloud collector within every SDDC that needs to be added as a data source.
Note: For a single node SDDC in VMware Cloud on AWS, CPU resource reservation for the proxy VM must be at least 1251 MHz.
Important: During this step, you must configure Web proxies and Firewall rules for VMware Cloud on AWS.
3 Add VMware vCenter Server deployed in VMware Cloud on Dell EMC in vRealize Network Insight Cloud Add a VMware Cloud (VMC) - vCenter
4 Generate an API token from VMware Cloud Services Generate API Tokens
Note:
