vCenter Server

VMware vCenter Server is a data center management server application developed by VMware Inc. to monitor virtualized environments. vCenter Server provides centralized management and operation, resource provisioning and performance evaluation of virtual machines residing on a distributed virtual data center. A vCenter Server is used to manage volumes and Virtual Volumes (vVols) configured on an array.

An array must register the HPE vCenter Plugin with vCenter Server before it can be displayed in the list of arrays that can connect to vCenter Server.

NOTE: You can use the array GUI only to add a vCenter Server to an array, or register a vCenter Plugin. To edit or remove a vCenter Server from the array, or unregister a vCenter Plugin, you must use the array OS CLI. For more information, refer to the CLI Administration Guide.
