To get started with endpoint monitoring on
vCenter, download and install the Panorama Plugin for VMware vCenter.
you have a Panorama HA configuration, repeat this installation process
on each Panorama peer. When installing the plugin on Panoramas in
an HA pair, install the plugin on the passive peer before the active
peer. After installing the plugin on the passive peer, it will transition
to a non-functional state. Installing the plugin on the active peer
returns the passive peer to a functional state.
If you have
a standalone Panorama or two Panorama appliances installed in an
HA pair with multiple plugins installed, plugins might not receive
updated IP-tag information if one or more of the plugins is not
configured. This occurs because Panorama will not forward IP-tag
information to unconfigured plugins. Additionally, this issue can occur
if one or more of the Panorama plugins is not in the Registered
or Success state (positive state differs on each plugin). Ensure
that your plugins are in the positive state before continuing or
executing the commands described below.
If you encounter this
issue, there are two workarounds:
Uninstall the unconfigured
plugin or plugins. It is recommended that you do not install a plugin
that you do not plan to configure right away
You can use the following commands to work around this issue.
Execute the following command for each unconfigured plugin on each
Panorama instance to prevent Panorama from waiting to send updates.
If you do not, your firewalls may lose some IP-tag information.
request plugins dau plugin-name <plugin-name> unblock-device-push yes
can cancel this command by executing:
request plugins dau plugin-name <plugin-name> unblock-device-push no
commands described are not persistent across reboots and must be
used again for any subsequent reboots. For Panorama in HA pair,
the commands must be executed on each Panorama.

to complete the upload.
Select the version of the plugin and click
the Action column to install the plugin. Panorama will alert you
when the installation is complete.
