OpenManage Network Integration enables configuration and management of Dell EMC PowerSwitch systems that are running SmartFabric OS10 within the vCenter. With OpenManage Network Integration, networks that are created in vCenter are automatically configured in the fabric.
Using the OpenManage Network Integration plug-in in vCenter, you can perform the following tasks:
OpenManage Network Integration provides a way to easily and automatically create networks for SAP HANA. The plug-in enables the VMware administrator to administer the network with no more than a basic understanding of the network. Administrators can use SFS APIs to further automate a network configuration.
The figures in this section show how to create SAP HANA networks using OpenManage Network Integration.
The example shown in Figure 17 assumes that the following networks are needed for the SAP HANA landscape:
Figure 17. SAP HANA network requirements
Using OpenManage Network Integration, you can create or modify Layer 2 or Layer 3 networks for the SAP HANA landscape. An SAP HANA internal network requires a Layer 2 network. SAP HANA management and production networks require a Layer 3 network because they must be routed to an external network. Creating or modifying the networks using OpenManage Network Integration is simple because OpenManage Network Integration is embedded in vSphere vCenter, as shown in the following figure:
