We are excited to announce that we have launched our new Hive Community! HiveNation will remain as an archive, but all new posts, discussions, and articles will be created on Hive Community. You can visit our new community at thehivecommunity.aerohive.com
You are correct. The first release of ID Manager supports a single HiveManager virtual appliance as a whole, so there is not currently a way to bind an IDM account to a VHM on a virtual appliance. (You can bind to a VHM in HiveManager online.) We will consider that capability for future releases -- thank you for the suggestion!
