    ESX Agent with BladeLogic OM 7.5

    Steven Alexson

      Currently, we are running Bladelogic Operations Manager 7.5. I have been working with our VM team here to start installing the ESX agent on our VMWare hosts. The VM teamed checked with their VMWare representative concerning the impact of the agent on the ESX host, and here is the response they received:


      "The latest release of Bladelogic (v7.5) has eliminated the agent installed on  the ESX COS requirement – Bladelogic now connects remotely to the vCenter API  which enables the product to support both ESX and ESXi."


      What does this statement mean, exactly? How would we go about managing the ESX host if there is no agent on it?
