To enable VM management feature we can install NGT on user VM’s 

To use the NGT feature, you must do the following:

  1. Enable the NGT feature for a VM in the Prism Element web console. 


  1. When you enable NGT for a VM, Prism Element prepares the VM so that NGT can be successfully installed and used in that VM.


  1. Mount the NGT installer (ISO disk file) in a VM.

  2. Install NGT in a user VM.

  • Few requirements we need to take care of:

  1. The following ports must be open between the Controller VMs and guest VMs on which NGT is installed:

  2. Controller VM: 2074. TCP port 2074 must be open in the Controller VM, so that user VMs can communicate with the Controller VM.

  3. User VM: TCP port 23578 if you want to use the VSS service.
