Install the Hyper-V or XenServer Agent in vCAC

The Hyper-V agent manages Hyper-V server instances. The XenServer agent manages XenServer server instances.

Make sure that you note the Agent name from step 7. Give this name to the IaaS Administrator who configures endpoints. The endpoint must be linked to the agent that was configured for it to enable access and data collection.

The IaaS components, including the Manager Service and Website, are installed.
Verify that you have satisfied all the Hyper-V and XenServer Requirements.
