VMware vRealize Operations Manager – Install

Release date: November 21st 2018

Welcome to my vRealize Operations Manager series, how I setup “vRops” in my LAB. In this session I will describe how I did the installation-phase.

After finishing the process of planning and preparing for installation of VMware vRealize Operations Manager, I’m now ready for installing.

In vCenter, I have prepared a Virtual Machine Folder called vRops. Here I right-click, choose “Deploy OVF Template.


I browse and select the ova-file I downloaded during preparations for this installation.


I punch in the Virtual Machine Name I choose during planning.


The default Cluster location is as nice a compute resource as any


As my Lab isn’t very large, the Small Deployment Configuration will suffice nicely, could also have chosen Extra Small here. For more info about sizing see: vRealize Operations Manager 6.7 Sizing Guidelines


I select Thin Provisioning and a suitable storage location


The Destination Network I chose during planning is selected


I finally customize the template with ip-adressing and domain-info from the planning/preparing phase.


Finally, ready to complete the installation phase.


Once the appliance is deployed, I can power it up and move on to the configuration-phase, described in my next post: VMware vRealize Operations Manager Configure
