Nerdio Manager for MSP Prerequisites. 

 

There are two components to a Managed WVD Environment in NMM.

  1. NMM Web Application - This is the hosted Azure Web Application used to manage all MSP NMM accounts
  2. NMM Client Account(s) - This is the client WVD tenant managed in NMM

 

NMM Application

Nerdio Manager for MSP is installed and billed through the Azure marketplace. The installation process generally takes five to 10 minutes, and can be broken down in to three phases:

  1. Install NMM application from Azure Marketplace listing
  2. Continue installation with an Azure CloudShell script
  3. Register your install with our licensing server

 

NMM Account(s)

After installing NMM, you will need to connect an account to manage. Generally, this will be a customer account, though you can also connect to and manage your own Azure tenant.

The following prerequisites are required in order to add an account:

  • Azure AD login in the Customer tenant, with Global Administrator and subscription Owner roles
  • If using existing Active Directory, you'll need the domain name and an admin username/password
