Centralized monitoring and management depend on VxRail satellite nodes that are deployed at remote locations and connect to a VxRail Manager instance on a previously deployed VxRail cluster. VxRail Manager, which is deployed on the external management network, must be able to discover every planned satellite node by IP address.
Each VxRail satellite node is assigned a management IP address during the installation process. At initial power-on, the VxRail satellite node is considered stranded until a connection with a VxRail Manager instance is established.
Plan your data center network to allow the VxRail external management network to route externally. Work with your network administrators or service providers to support this network to route to each planned VxRail satellite node.
