You can install vRealize Hyperic agents on virtual machines that are managed by vCenter Server, using vRealize Infrastructure Navigator.

In the Manage > Hyperic Agents tab, you can see all the virtual machines for which you have vRealize Infrastructure Navigator access privileges. Depending on the level of access you have been assigned, you can install a vRealize Hyperic agent on those virtual machines, refresh the status of the agents, or cancel pending agent installations.

Before you can install a vRealize Hyperic agent on a virtual machine, you must have sufficient privileges to perform the action. Privileges are assigned at the level of vCenter Server or one of its objects, and propagated.

You must configure certain agent management parameters for the vRealize Hyperic agent. During installation, the target virtual machine retrieves the agent installation files from the vRealize Infrastructure Navigator appliance, so you must verify that the virtual machine can retrieve the files from the vRealize Infrastructure Navigator appliance.

If you are using an external repository for the vRealize Hyperic agent installation files, you must ensure that the virtual machines can access that repository.

There are a number of procedures to set up the environment and install a vRealize Hyperic agent on a virtual machine using vRealize Infrastructure Navigator.
