p4000 SAN IQ 9.5 Application-managed snapshot on VM

Hi, does anyony know whether application-managed snapshot feature of p4000 is nenessary in a vmware environment?

 

When we take the snapshot with application-managed snapshot enable, we get stuck with "discovering the controlling application server" then after a while the CMC display error "Failed to contact application aware snapshot manager" yes we already configured the authentication console, the vCenter and CMC are running on the same server, we already installed the application aware snapshot manger on this server.

I figured out a solution, our issue was networking, the CMC and vCenter was on different subnet, the application aware snap works after we enable NAT on the firewall
