Connecting to a highly available VMM management server using the VMM console

The VMM console is the GUI interface of the VMM management server. You will be using it to manage the cloud, fabric, storage, and resources.

You can use this recipe to configure the VMM console to connect to a highly available VMM management server.

Getting ready

To ensure best practice, install the VMM console on a machine rather than on clustered VMM servers. It is recommended that you install it on the management desktop, and from there, connect to the HA VMM cluster, as it will prevent a connection loss in one of the VMM management nodes in the event of failure.
