Pinned topic REST API to create Virtual Servers using SDMC

‏2011-08-18T13:52:55Z |
Hello,

Systems Director and its VMControl plug-in has a rich set of REST APIs to create and manage virtual servers.

Since SDMC uses SD-Express, is it possible to use the REST APIs to create/manage virtual servers through SDMC?

The second question is related to cloning. Is it possible to create virtual appliance through SDMC and clone it? If so, what is the procedure to achieve it?

Thanks,
~Anant

    VMControl is not part of SDMC. As a result, the REST APIs for creating/managing virtual servers are not available as part of the SDMC. Virtual Appliance management is part of VMControl - so no, it's not possible to create virtual appliances through the SDMC.

    Think of SDMC in the same way you think of the HMC with respect to it's role and function in your environment.
