ONTAP Select : is it possible to deploy select without vCenter

Hello,

 

Is it possible to deploy ONTAP Select 9.3 without vCenter ? My customer is running an ESXi 6.5 u1 server without vCenter.

 

Regards,

Yes - when you add the host there is an option to provide the login/password for vCenter or ESXi - just deselect "Add from vCenter".

Thank for your answer.

The documentation refers only to the vCenter :  « You must have access to the vCenter server managing the ESXi hypervisor hosts where ONTAP Select is deployed »

Seems at least impossible with the ovf deployment, unless someone has a trick?

 

"You must use a vCenter account to deploy the OVF template. Installing directly to an ESXi host is not currently supported."

Hello FrenchBlue,

 

Can you tell me in which documentation you saw that ?
