VMware vRealize Operations Manager – Planning

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

 

VMware has made an excellent documentation about how to install/configure VMware vRealize Operations Manager here:

vRealize Operations Manager vApp Deployment Guide

Using this great guide, I made my plans based on these questions:

  • IP-address, subnet, gateway, dns-servers?
  • FQDN for my virtual machine?
  • Virtual Machine name?
  • Virtual Machine Folder?
  • Compute source?
  • Configuration size?
  • Virtual Machine Disk format?
  • Destination Network?
  • vCenter Username and Role assignment?

When all these questions were answered and documented, I could proceed with preparations for my VMware vRealize Operations Manager Install, posted here: VMware vRealize Operations Manager Prepare
