Thanks for your reply.
I have successfully installed VDDK on my ManageIQ appliance,but when i analysis a vm on Exsi，error occurred:
No eligible proxies for VM :[[HDS_Datastore] BootFromTemplateMNGIQ/BootFromTemplateMNGIQ.vmx] - [Provide credentials for this VM's Host to perform SmartState Analysis], aborting job
and I saw some text that describes SmartProxy in Quick Start Guide:
The SmartProxy can be configured to reside on the CloudForms Management Engine Appliance or on an ESX server version. The
SmartProxy can be deployed from the CloudForms Management Engine Appliance, and provides visibility to the VMFS storage.
Each storage location must have a SmartProxy with visibility to it. The SmartProxy acts on behalf of the CloudForms Management
Engine Appliance. If the SmartProxy is not embedded in the CloudForms Management Engine server, it communicates with the
CloudForms Management Engine Appliance over HTTPS (SSL) on standard port 443.
It seems that smartproxy is not necessary to be deployed on Exsi host,right?
When I analysis VMs in OpenStack,error occurred too:
No root filesystem found.
Is there something wrong with my smart proxy ?
When I do a SmartState Analysis,what will the proxy do actually?
Thanks a lot.
