How to configure vRealize Operations Manager Part 2

1.      Log into vRealize Operations Manager using admin and the password you configured earlier.

2.      Select “New Environment” if you are not importing data from an existing vCenter Operations Manager install or “New Environment” if you are. It is a lab practice so I will go with New Environment.

3.      Accept the EULA and click Next.

4.      Enter your product key or start a product evaluation then click Next

5.      Now click on Finish at the Ready to complete stage. 

6.      When the vRealize Operations Manager configuration wizard finishes you should be taken to the “Solutions” menu. Click on “Configure” above “VMware vSphere” in the right pane. 

7.      In this step we’ll need to give vRealize Operations Manager credentials to use for the vCenter Adapter and vCenter Python Actions Adapter. So select the vCenter Adapter, enter a display name (#1), enter your vCenter server name or IP address (#2), click on the green plus icon (#3) and add your credential name, username, and password. Then click on Ok and Test Connection.
Note: Best practice is, always use separate account for adapter configuration

8.      Review the certificate information and click on OK.

9.      Click on OK after the test has been successful. 

10.      Now click on “Save Settings“.

 11.      Under “Adapter Type” select vCenter Python Actions Adapter and repeat steps 7 – 10 then click on “Next“.

12.    Select how you would like the default policy to monitor your environment and click on Next

13.      Finally click on Finish on the Ready to complete page. 

14.  If above step complete successfully then you should see both the vCenter Adapter and vCenter Python Actions Adapter collecting and receiving data. 

This is the last stage, VMware vRealize Operations Manager 6.0.1 has been deployed, configured, and now collecting data from your vCenter environment.
