You must set up the vRealize Network Insight Cloud collector to collect data from VMware Cloud on AWS.

Prerequisites

Deploy a vRealize Network Insight Cloud collector within every SDDC that needs to be added as a data source.
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.

Procedure

  1. Log in to vRealize Network Insight Cloud.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Install and Support > Add Collector VM.
  3. Copy the contents of the shared secret.

    You will require this during the deployment of vRealize Network Insight Cloud Collector OVA.

  4. Deploy the vRealize Network Insight Cloud Collector OVA in the Compute Resource Pool of the VMware Cloud on AWS vCenter.
    Use the shared secret that you have generated.
    Note: For a single node SDDC in VMware Cloud on AWS, CPU resource reservation for the proxy VM must be at least 1251 MHz.
  5. Start the collector VM and follow the wizard to pair the collector with the vRealize Network Insight Cloud platform.
    Note: During this step, you must configure Web proxies and Firewall rules for VMware Cloud on AWS.
  6. Validate that the collector pairs successfully with the platform.
