How to integrate VMware vSphere with StorMagic SvKMS
Once SvKMS has been successfully deployed and activated, it can be configured as a Key Management Server (KMS) for vSphere.
vSphere requests encryption keys from SvKMS. SvKMS generates and stores these keys which are passed to the vCenter server and used whenever a VM stored on vSphere needs to be encrypted.
This process requires two configuration steps. Firstly, to create a group, user and authentication certificate in the SvKMS Web Portal. Secondly SvKMS must be added as a KMS to your vCenter Server.
A full explanation and step-by-step guide to integrating vSphere with SvKMS can be found in the SvKMS manual, within the “Integrations” section. Separate guides are provided for vSphere versions 6.5, 6.7 and 7.0.
