Installation

Requirements

  • Icinga Web 2 (>= 2.4.1)
  • PHP (>= 5.3 or 7.x)
  • php-soap
  • php-posix

Once you got Icinga Web 2 up and running, all required dependencies should already be there. All, but php-soap and php-posix. They are available on all major Linux distributions and can be installed with your package manager (yum, apt…). Same goes also for non-Linux systems. Please do not forget to restart your web server service afterwards.

Installation from .tar.gz

Download the latest version and extract it to a folder named vsphere in one of your Icinga Web 2 module path directories.

You might want to use a script as follows for this task:

ICINGAWEB_MODULEPATH="/usr/share/icingaweb2/modules"
REPO_URL="https://github.com/Icinga/icingaweb2-module-vsphere"
TARGET_DIR="${ICINGAWEB_MODULEPATH}/vsphere"
MODULE_VERSION="1.0.0"
URL="${REPO_URL}/archive/v${MODULE_VERSION}.tar.gz"
install -d -m 0755 "${TARGET_DIR}"
wget -q -O - "$URL" | tar xfz - -C "${TARGET_DIR}" --strip-components 1

Installation from GIT repository

Another convenient method is the installation directly from our GIT repository. Just clone the repository to one of your Icinga Web 2 module path directories. It will be immediately ready for use:

ICINGAWEB_MODULEPATH="/usr/share/icingaweb2/modules"
REPO_URL="https://github.com/Icinga/icingaweb2-module-vsphere"
TARGET_DIR="${ICINGAWEB_MODULEPATH}/vsphere"
MODULE_VERSION="1.0.0"
git clone "${REPO_URL}" "${TARGET_DIR}"

You can now directly use our current GIT master or check out a specific version.

Enable the newly installed module

Enable the vsphere module either on the CLI by running…

icingacli module enable vsphere

…or go to your Icinga Web 2 frontend, choose Configuration -> Modules -> vsphere module - and enable it:
