SCVMM

Requirements

Access to SCVMM host on 5985 for Agent Installation
The Morpheus Agent is required, and is installed on the target SCVMM host via port 5985/winrm.

User with Administrator privileges

Agent Requirement

SCVMM and Hyper-V Integrations utilize the Morpheus Agent for communications with the Morpheus appliance, making the Morpheus Agent required. This also means SCVMM and Hyper-V Clouds can only point to one Morpheus Appliance at once. If another Morpheus Appliance adds a SCVMM or Hyper-V Cloud thats is already managed by another Morpheus Appliance, the Morpheus Agent appliance_url will be updated to point to the new Morpheus Appliance url, and the previous Morpheus Appliance iwll no longer be able to communicate with the SCVMM cloud or Hyper-V cloud until the agent configuration is updated to point to the previous Appliance again.

Add a SCVMM Cloud

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure -> Clouds
  2. Select + CREATE CLOUD, select SCVMM, and then click Next.
  3. Enter the following into the Create Cloud modal:

Note

You will need to open is 5985 in order for Morpheus to communicate to SCVMM. You will also want to make sure SCVMM has WinRM enabled.

Name
Name of the Cloud in Morpheus
Location
Description field for adding notes on the cloud, such as location.
Visibility
For setting cloud permissions in a multi-tenant environment. Not applicable in single tenant environments.
SCVMM HOST
IP or url of SCVMM host
USERNAME
SCVMM Username. ex: svc.scvmm
PASSWORD
SCVMM User Password
CLOUD
To scope the SCVMM Integration to a single Cloud, select it from the Cloud dropdown, which populates after establishing communication and authorization over 5985 using the supplied username and password above. To scope to all Clouds, leave the srop down as Select Cloud
HOST GROUP
To scope the SCVVM Integration to a single host group, select a Host group from the drop down list. To scope to all Host Groups, select All Hosts
Cluster
To scope the SCVVM Integration to a single Cluster, select a Cluster from the drop down list. To scope to all Host Groups, select All
WORKING PATH
Path for Morpheus to write to. ex: C:\Cloud
DISK PATH
Path for Virtual Disks. ex: C:\VirtualDisks
HIDE HOST SELECTION FROM USERS
Prevents host selection from appearing in provisioning wizards
INVENTORY EXISTING INSTANCES
Enable to discover exiting VM’s in the scoped resources.
ENABLE HYPERVISOR CONSOLE
Enable to use VNC Hypervisor Console for Morpheus Console conneciton, vs the default SSH and RDP Console Conneciton methods. Requires resolution of all Hyper-V host names and access over port 443 from the Morpheus Appliance to Hyper-V hosts.

Advanced Options

DOMAIN
Specify a default domain for instances provisioned to this Cloud.
SCALE PRIORITY
Only affects Docker Provisioning. Specifies the priority with which an instance will scale into the cloud. A lower priority number means this cloud integration will take scale precedence over other cloud integrations in the group.
APPLIANCE URL
Alternate Appliance url for scenarios when the default Appliance URL (configured in admin -> settings) is not reachable or resolvable for Instances provisioned in this cloud. The Appliance URL is used for Agent install and reporting.
TIME ZONE
Configures the time zone on provisioned VM’s if necessary.
DATACENTER ID
Used for differentiating pricing among multiple datacenters. Leave blank unless prices are properly configured.
NETWORK MODE
Unmanaged or Managed
HOST FIREWALL
On or Off. Enable to managed Host firewall/IP Table rules (linux only)
SECURITY MODE

Defines if Morpheus will control local firewall of provisioned servers and hosts.

Important

When local firewall management is enabled, Morpheus will automatically set an IP table rule to allow incoming connections on tcp port 22 from the Morpheus Appliance.

SECURITY SERVER
Select security off or Local Firewall
TRUST PROVIDER
Select Internal (Morpheus) or an existing Trust Provider Integration
STORAGE MODE
Single Disk, LVM or Clustered
BACKUP PROVIDER
Select Internal Backups (Morpheus) or a Backup Integration
REPLICATION PROVIDER
Sets the default Replication Provider for the Cloud. Select an existing Replication Provider Integration
GUIDANCE
Enable Guidance recommendations on cloud resources.
COSTING
Enable for Morpheus to sync Costing data from the Cloud provider, when available. If your organization utilizes reserved instances and you want to pull in related pricing data, select Costing and Reservations. If this is not relevant, select Costing to save money on additional calls to the AWS Cost Explorer API or similar service for other clouds.
DNS INTEGRATION
Records for instances provisioned in this cloud will be added to selected DNS integration.
SERVICE REGISTRY
Services for instances provisioned in this cloud will be added to selected Service Registry integration.
CONFIG MANAGEMENT
Select a Chef, Salt, Ansible or Puppet integration to be used with this Cloud.
CMDB
Select CMDB Integration to automatically update selected CMDB.
CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Select an existing Change Management Integration to set on the Cloud. ex: Cherwell
AGENT INSTALL MODE
  • SSH / WINRM: Morpheus will use SSH or WINRM for Agent install.
  • Cloud Init / Unattend (when available): Morpheus will utilize Cloud-Init or Cloudbase-Init for agent install when provisioning images with Cloud-Init/Cloudbase-Init installed. Morpheus will fall back on SSH or WINRM if cloud-init is not installed on the provisioned image. Morpheus will also add Agent installation to Windows unattend.xml data when performing Guest Customizaitons or utilizing syspreped images.
API PROXY
Required when a Proxy Server blocks communication between the Morpheus Appliance and the Cloud. Proxies can be added in the Infrastructure -> Networks -> Proxies tab.
INSTALL AGENT
Enable to have Agent Installation on by default for all provisioning into this Cloud. Disable for Agent Installation to be off by default for all provisioning into this Cloud.

Provisioning Options

PROXY
Required when a Proxy Server blocks communication between an Instance and the Morpheus Appliance. Proxies can be added in the Infrastructure -> Networks -> Proxies tab.
Bypass Proxy for Appliance URL
Enable to bypass proxy settings (if added) for Instance Agent communication to the Appliance URL.
USER DATA (LINUX)
Add cloud-init user data or scripts. Assumes bash syntax.
  1. The Cloud can now be added to a Group or configured with additional Advanced options.
