In part one of the blog series on installing and configuring vROps we deployed the virtual appliance. In this post we will be adding our vCenter server to vRops.

Part 1: Install and Configure vRealize Operations Manager 8.2 Part 1 – TheSleepyAdmins

There are a few different types of accounts that can be added.

  • vCenter
  • VMC
  • AWS
  • Microsoft Azure

To add vCenter we need to logon to the vROps web client and go to Administration > Cloud Accoutns > Add Account

Select the account type for vCenter

Give the cloud Account a name, description and the vCenter DNS address and a logon credentials.

Click the validate connect to confirm the details are correct. If the certificate is not trusted you will be asked to review and confirm the certificate.

Once successfully completed we can then added vCenter.

The connection will now be setup and once completed will show under cloud accounts.

To view if information on the vCenter server is being collected we can go to Environment > vSphere Hosts and Clusters > vSphere World.

vROps can take a little time before metrics and alert start to show.

In the next post we will go through configuring AD Authentication and configuring group based access control.
