Before the EAM Sample Solution can deploy ESX agents on ESX hosts, you must configure the virtual infrastructure so that vSphere can assign networks and datastores to the ESX agent virtual machines.

You must set the ESX Agent Manager properties on a vCenter Server system to configure the network and datastore on which to deploy ESX agent virtual machines on this vCenter Server instance.
