The agentless solution integrates with NSX Manager and Service Composer for policy and event handling, meaning virtual machines are protected as soon as they are provisioned.
This post will detail the installation and configuration process of the Mc Afee MOVE service deployment and the associate VMware components; NSX Manager and Guest Introspection.
Depending on your environment some of the steps below might already be configured, you may also need to repeat sections for multiple v Centers.
