and we are back.
00:03
Let's now logging to Avi's Under the username is administrator at the sphere Dark local.
00:10
The password is one you configured during the installation of reason
00:15
You can see here where it says feel my view center Single sign on We're actually authenticating against the PSC s s s self service
00:24
on dhe we're in.
00:26
The first thing you notice is this orange bar at the top of the window. It reminds you that you have either expired licenses or licenses that are about to expire.
00:39
Let's click on manage licenses
00:41
on, then click on assets
00:44
and you can see here that are re center hasn't evaluation license that will expire on November 4th, 2019.
00:52
Okay, so
00:53
let's go to the inventory by clicking on the street Client on the top left,
00:58
then click on hosts and clusters.
01:00
This pain right here shows you the recent tasks performed in V center
01:06
and whether there was any alarm that was triggered due to an event
01:10
that's minimize this
01:12
and the left. Most pain here is our presenter inventory,
01:17
and it contains four camps. The first tab is the hosts and cluster stab. It contains all the hosts and clusters that are being managed by V. Zander.
01:27
There are none for now, but we will add one shortly.
01:30
The second tap is where all the V ems that are managed by recent ER will appear.
01:38
The third tab is where all the data stores available to your yes, Excite hosts will appear.
01:44
And finally, the fourth stamp is where all the network port groups available in your data center,
01:49
into which you can plug your V. EMS will appear here.
01:53
We'll talk about that legend.
01:56
These are the four taps you'll be using the most during your administration tasks.
02:01
Now we've installed re center in order to manage or data center self. Let's make good use of it.
02:07
The first object you need to create in the inventory is the data center object.
02:13
So right, click on the recent object and choose new data center.
02:17
Give it e meaningful name and then click. Okay,
02:22
now we're gonna add in years Excite Host to manage. So right, click the data center, object and select and Hearst,
02:30
Let's add our tears Excite host So type inthe e i p address or f udn with the host. Then click next
02:38
user name is route.
02:42
Type in the password
02:44
and click most.
02:46
The PSC will complain about the untrusted certificate generated by your tears Excite House.
02:52
We've seen earlier that this is because yes, excited uses self signed certificates.
02:57
There is no risk whatsoever. So go ahead and click Yes, to accept the certificate.
03:01
This window gives you interesting information about these X I host. You're about to add things like the yes Xie version
03:09
and deviants running on it. We can see that it has a V m called V Center, which is the very same Veum we are locked into right now.
03:20
This can mess with your mind, but don't keep staring at it.
03:23
Click next.
03:24
And here's where you can add a license to your ears. X I host if you got one. But since we're in proof of concept environment, just choose the evaluation license and click next.
03:37
No
03:38
locked down mood.
03:39
I promised earlier that I should explain what it is, and here we are, so lock down mode is a security future that prevents remote access to your tears. Excite host outside off the center
03:53
and it has two levels off severity.
03:55
It is disabled by default, which means that even though this is exciting, host is being managed by the center. It can still be accessed using the first client as a sage. Tow the SX I shell or through the DC weir.
04:11
But if you choose the moral mood,
04:13
access through the Hearst client is denied.
04:16
But the D. C. Y and as a sage are still accepted.
04:19
If you choose the strict mount, however, even the dis you why is denied and your host is exclusively manageable through V center only
04:30
if you haven't enabled as a sage before choosing the strict moat and V's enter goes down. You are doomed, my friends. So your ear *** I host becomes unusable and there is nowhere you can access it.
04:44
This is a security measure that was taken too far.
04:46
If you still want to use it, do not forget to enable S S H and the S X I shell beforehand.
04:55
Now we'll leave it disabled and click next.
04:58
I know it will ask you where to place Viens, since this is a fresh installation of the center and we've got a single data center with no clusters or folders just flick next,
05:10
and this is the summary off the host configuration.
05:13
Review it quickly before he finally added, Then click. Next.
05:17
It will take a few seconds,
05:19
and here's our is excited. Host listed in the V's enters inventory under the hosts and clusters tab
05:28
in the middle tab to the right. You can see the resource is available in this host.
05:33
It will take a few seconds to refresh.
05:35
If you click on the little arrow to the left of the host, it will display the V EMS that are running on this house.
05:43
You can see that there is only one fear, which is our recent of server appliance.
05:48
You can create new mediums either by right clicking on the host than choosing new Virgin Shin
05:56
or
05:57
by clicking on actions in the middle pain and choosing your virtual machine.
06:02
Suchet.
06:03
That was a quick overview on how to navigate the center's inventory and at the asx I house.
06:12
Thanks for working
