You can import an existing environment of vRealize Network Insight.

Prerequisites

Verify that there is an instance of vRealize Network Insight along with its user credentials available.

Procedure

  1. After creating an Create Environment page, on the products card, select the vRealize Network Insight check box.
  2. Click Import and click Next.
  3. On the Product Details page, enter the vRNI Admin user name.
    All authorization token and csrf tokens are generated using admin user name and password.
  4. Enter the Console Password and Support Password.
    With console user and support user credentials, you can run vRealize Network Insight specific commands and debug your environment.
    Note: Support password of all nodes must be same. Although, import of vRNI can be successful but future operations like upgrade precheck, upgrade, password update, clustering fails. You have to change the support password of all nodes to one single password. Similarly, console passwords of all nodes must be same. However, console and support password can be same across all nodes.
  5. Enter the vRNI Admin Password and Platform IP address.
  6. Select the vCenter Server Instance from the drop-down menu and click Next.
  7. Review the Request Summary and click Submit.
