Deployed Veeam nworks Management Pack For vSphere

I deployed the Veeam management pack for System Center Operations Manager with a client on their site site yesterday to monitor VMware vSphere.  It was my first production deployment of the solution.  It was pretty simple:

  • Deploy collectors
  • Discover vCenter servers/hosts
  • Monitor
  • Run reports

Oh and the reports!  There’s so many of them with lots of information.  It’s a very nice management pack.  And it accomplishes what the client wanted: they have visibility into VMware from System Center.

Does it work?  Yeap; it detected read latency on a HBA, an oversubscribed VMFS volume (based on potential growth of thin VMDKs), and a full VMFS.
