Prerequisites for VMware Cloud

Before configuring your instance for VMware Cloud, you must activate the plugin, install a MID Server, and install vCenter.

Activate the Plugin

For instructions on activating the Orchestration - VMware Support plugin, which requires a separate subscription, see Configuring VMware Cloud. Activating this plugin also activates the Orchestration and web service Consumer plugins if they are not already active.

Install a MID Server

Install a ServiceNow MID Server on a suitable machine in your network and configure it to communicate with the instance. Ensure that the MID Server version is compatible with the ServiceNow instance version.

Install vCenter

Install the vCenter management application from VMware. Create the Windows and Linux templates on your ESX Server that the system can use to create virtual machines from service catalog requests. Refer to VMware product documentation for vCenter and the ESX Server for details about these procedures.
