Installing and configuring VxFlex Manager If VxFlex Manager is already installed on the VxFlex integrated rack and the operating system installation (PXE) network is configured in the factory, go to Configuring VxFlex Manager and complete the tasks in that section. Before you install VxFlex Manager, ensure that VxFlex Manager supports the RCM version running on the VxFlex integrated rack. As of VxFlex Manager version 3.3, OpenManage Enterprise is no longer required to connect to Secure Remote Services.
