Business Continuity

Since v5.1 of vSphere, VMware have focused on providing web based management for the vSphere environment, with v5.5 more functionality has been placed into the vSphere Web Client to bring its capabilities on par to that of the Windows based vSphere Client. Moving forward VMware have stated that any new feature VMware introduces typically is only going to be available within the vSphere Web Client. Due to the move by VMware away from the Windows based vSphere Client Symantec has also developed integration into the vSphere Web Client so that customers using Symantec High Availability solutions can leverage the vSphere Web Client also. This paper describes the steps needed to enable management of Symantec high availability solutions with the vSphere Web Client.
