Connecting to VMware NSX Manager
December 13, 2023
At this step, specify the settings used by the Integration Server for interaction with VMware NSX Manager where the Integration Server registers Kaspersky Security services.
To specify the settings for connecting the Integration Server to VMware NSX Manager:
- In the VMware NSX Manager type drop-down list, select the type of VMware NSX Manager that is used in your virtual infrastructure.
- Specify the following connection settings:
- IP address in IPv4 format or the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of VMware NSX Manager.
- Name and password of the account used to connect the Integration Server to VMware NSX Manager. The Enterprise Admin or Enterprise Administrator role (depending on VMware NSX Manager version) must be assigned this account.
At this step, you can also configure the settings used by VMware NSX Manager to transmit information to the Integration Server. By default, the settings that are used when connecting the Integration Server Console to the Integration Server are specified. The Address field contains the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the computer on which the Integration Server is installed (if the computer is in a domain), the name of the computer in a Windows workgroup (if the computer is not in a domain), or the computer IP address.
Make sure that VMware NSX Manager can connect to the Integration Server using the default settings or change those settings. To change the settings, select the Specify the settings for connecting VMware NSX Manager to Integration Server check box, and specify the IP address or fully qualified domain name of the computer on which the Integration Server is installed and the connection port.
Proceed to the next step of the wizard.
The Wizard checks whether it can connect to VMware NSX Manager and to the Integration Server using the specified settings.
When establishing the connection to VMware NSX Manager, the Wizard verifies the SSL certificate received from VMware NSX Manager. If the received certificate contains an error, the Wizard displays an error message. Click the View certificate link to view information about the received certificate.
If a connection error occurs because the certificate received from VMware NSX Manager is not trusted for the Integration Server but the received certificate complies with the security policy of your organization, you can confirm the authenticity of the certificate and establish a connection. To do so, click the Install certificate button. The received certificate is saved as a trusted certificate for the Integration Server.
Certificates that are trusted in the operating system in which the Integration Server is installed are also considered to be trusted for the Integration Server.
If there are problems with the SSL certificate, it is recommended to make sure that the utilized data transfer channel is secure.
If checking the Integration Server connection settings ends with an error, the Wizard window displays an error message and you cannot proceed to the next step of the Wizard. If you want to correct the entered settings, click Cancel. If the settings have been entered correctly, you can ignore the error message. If this is the case, click Continue to proceed to the next step of the Wizard.
