The Symantec High Availability plug-in enables the integration of the Symantec High Availability Solution with the VMware vSphere Client.

The following are the new features for this release.

VMwareDisks agent

The VMwareDisks agent enables vMotion and VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) in Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) clusters configured and deployed on virtual machines in a VMware environment. The VMwareDisks agent manages the attaching and detaching of the disks to the virtual machines.

For more information on the VMwareDisks agent, see the following sections in the Veritas Cluster Server Bundled Agents Reference Guide:

Symantec High Availability Configuration wizard

Use the Symantec High Availability Configuration wizard to:

  • Configure application monitoring
  • Unconfigure application monitoring
  • Add a failover target to a service group or application
  • Remove a failover target from a service group or application

Menu to install the guest components

You can install the following Symantec High Availability products using the vSphere Client menu:

  • Symantec ApplicationHA guest components
  • Veritas Cluster Server (VCS)

Use the vSphere Client menu to install the products on multiple virtual machines across ESX clusters and datacenters registered with a VMware vCenter Server. The supported VCS agents for this release are automatically installed.

Symantec High Availability tab

The Symantec High Availability tab displays the consolidated health information for applications running in a VCS cluster. When you click a system in the inventory view of the VMware vSphere client, the Symantec High Availability tab displays application information for the entire VCS cluster, not just the selected system.

Symantec High Availability dashboard

The Symantec High Availability dashboard displays the aggregate application health status information for a datacenter or an ESX cluster. Depending on whether you click a datacenter or a VMware cluster in the inventory view of the VMware vSphere Client GUI, the dashboard displays the aggregate application status information.

Menu to manage licenses

You can manage licenses on local and remote virtual machines through the vSphere Client menu.
