Connector configuration

The Snow Integration Connector for Oracle VM is configured in Snow Integration Manager (SIM). For more information on SIM, refer to Snow Integration Manager.

Prerequisites

  • A supported version of Oracle VM is required. Refer to Snow Compatibility Matrix for supported versions by Snow Integration Connector for Oracle VM.

  • To read inventory data from Oracle VM Manager REST API endpoints, a user account with API access rights is required. In some versions there is only an admin user level, then you should use that level.

Note

For reporting the installed softwares on hosted virtual machines, Snow Inventory Agents are required.

Configure the Oracle VM connector

In Snow Integration Manager, add Oracle VM connector and configure the following settings:

  1. Enter a Site name for this collection of Oracle VM servers.

  3. Enter a Name for this connection.

    Important

    If an IP address is to be entered in Hostname in the next step, then it is recommended to enter the Oracle VM Manager server name, to avoid a mismatch of data coming from the Snow Inventory Agent from this same Oracle VM Manager server, since in this case the connector would report the entered name as the device name for Oracle VM Manager Server to Snow License Manager.

  4. Enter the Hostname address for the Oracle VM Manager server.

  5. In Port, enter the required port number. The default port number is 7002.

  6. In Username and Password, enter credentials for a user account with access to the Oracle VM Manager REST API endpoints.

  7. Unselect the checkbox Use Https if the Oracle Manager VM server uses http.

  8. To verify the connection, select Test Connection.

  9. To save the provided settings and then close the connection window, select OK.

  10. Select Cancel to discard any unsaved settings.
