Adding and Removing Targets
The target services your Turbonomic installation will manage appear in the Target Configuration list. You can add, remove, and edit entries in this list. Note that the target service’s account must be configured with privileges that support the Turbonomic activities you want to perform. For example, the following list shows how vCenter privileges correspond to activities Turbonomic can perform:
Read Only — Enables Turbonomic monitoring and simulation (what-if scenarios) only
vCenter Administrator — Enables Turbonomic monitoring, simulation (what-if scenarios), and automation functions
Enable Datastore Browse — Enabling this property for the account gives Turbonomic the privileges it needs to enable its storage management functionality
To add a target service, click the Target Configuration button, provide the requested information, and click Apply to validate those targets and start a new discovery.
As you add targets, be sure not to add duplicate entries for the same target.
Typical information you provide includes:
Target Type — Choose among the supported technologies
After you choose the technology, then choose the specific target type for that technology. For example, for Cloud Management, you can choose AWS.
Hostname or IP address — The address of the target service you want to add
User Name — A valid account username for the target service
Password — A password for the target service account
To remove a target, select the entry in the list and then click Delete.
