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.
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
