Using the Engine Management Service User Interface

The Engine Management Service is the primary tool used for deployment and normal daily control of Neverfail Continuity Engine. Most routine operations can be performed from the Engine Management Service User Interface thereby providing a lightweight, easily accessible, method of conducting Neverfail Continuity Engine operations.

Configuring a Connection to VMware vCenter Server

The Configure Connection to VMware vCenter Server feature provides the ability to select and deploy Neverfail Continuity Engine on a powered-on VM, with VMtools running, from the vCenter inventory. Also, a VMware vCenter Server connection is required to automatically create a stand-by Secondary and/or Tertiary VM server from the cluster and place them on a specific Host/Datastore.

Procedure

To configure a connection to VMware vCenter Server:

  1. Click the vCenter button to display the Configure Connection to VMware vCenter Server page.
  2. Enter the URL for the VMware vCenter Server, the username, and the password for a user account with the minimum privileges required by EMS to operate (see Knowledgebase article #2901 - Configuring the Minimum VMware Permissions Required to Install and Manage Neverfail IT Continuity Engine v7.1[.n] or later ), and then click Next.
