Configuring vRealize Operation Manager

Using data collected from system resources (objects), vRealize Operations Manager identifies issues in monitored system components and suggests corrective actions you can take to fix them. vRealize Operations Manager offers analytical tools to help you review and manipulate object data to reveal hidden issues, identify trends, or drill down to gauge the health of a single object.

Use vRealize Operations Manager for operations management with application-to-storage visibility across physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures. You can also view metrics and summary monitoring data for your Google Cloud VMware Engine private clouds.

Deploy a new instance of vRealize Operations Manager

Every private cloud's vCenter server comes with the ability to deploy vRealize Operations Manager. To deploy a new instance of vRealize Operations Manager, use the following steps:

  1. Elevate your privileges. Select an elevation time internal of 2 hours.
  2. Create a new user in vCenter with administrative privileges.
  3. Follow the instructions to install a new instance of vRealize Operations Manager in vCenter Server. Select the network CS-Management and assign an unused address from the management network for the install.

Connect your vCenter server to an external vRealize Operations Manager

If you have an existing vRealize Operations Manager deployment, you can connect it to your private cloud's vCenter server. For example, you might have an existing vRealize Operations Manager instance running on another private cloud's vCenter server or on an on-premises vCenter server.

You can establish network connectivity to the vRealize Operations Manager running externally by using Cloud VPN or Cloud Interconnect. Follow the steps in Configure an existing instance of vRealize Operations Manager in vCenter Server.
