Introduction

The Snow Integration Connector for VMware vSphere is used for gathering of data center information into Snow License Manager.

Prerequisites

Access to the VMware vSphere Web Services SDK of the vSphere server is required.

To collect as much information as possible from each VM, it is recommended to install VMware tools on the virtual machines. To ensure acceptable data quality, VMware tools should be kept updated. Without an up-to-date installation of VMware tools, Snow Software cannot guarantee satisfactory data output.

Dependencies on other Snow products

The following Snow product versions are required to support the integration connector for VMware vSphere:

  • Snow Inventory Server 5 (or later) or Inventory Data Processor 4.6 (or later) for processing of inventory data into Snow Inventory.
