PCNS 3.0 on ESXi with vMA 5

Hi,

When installing PCNS in vMA for the first time it prompts you for an ESXi host. I've entered the IP for one host and it tell me the install has completed.  What happens when you have multiple hosts to protect, how do i set these up to protect?

Cheers

Thanks for that. I've added a server and it said it was successful but when i try and connect via the browser with https://###.###.###.###:6547/ the connection just times out. Do i need to reboot the host or something, i can't see anything in the install doc.

Cheers

Do i need to do all the stuff in the link http://blog.rebelit.net/?p=118 

Why is that stuff not included in Schneider's PCNS instructions??

Schneider's PCNS instructions are the latest for ESXi 5.0.

I would follow them from the beginning, or which is easier.

there have been changes with ESXi 5.1 and the vMA and password complexity.
