Welcome to my vRealize Operations Manager series, how I setup “vRops” in my LAB. In this session I will describe how I did the configuration-phase.
After deploying the appliance I power it up.
After it is powered up we come to the console
Everything looks good, so I proceed to the URL specified on the console-screen above. When I connect here the “vRealize Operations Manager Initial Setup” starts automatically. In my setup I will use Express Installation.
I need to enter a password for my admin-user.
This completes the initial setup
Now that the initial setup is done, I get to log in and finish the initial configuration
I enter my Product Key and validate this
This completes the initial configuration I needed to do.
Once I click finish I proceed automatically to Solutions, where I will add my vCenter
I enter “Display Name”, FQDN, add the user i created in vCenter to credentials and test the connection.
I save the settings and close. As for now I’m going to leave it alone to collect data for a couple of weeks. By then I will have a representative set of data to evaluate my vSphere setup.
In my next post, I will cover basic usage and customization here: VMware vRealize Operations Manager Usage and Customization
