How to Configure vRealize Operations Manager 6.5 Appliance

 Hi all,

Last week we discussed about how to deploy vRealize Operations manager appliance, today we will discuss how to configure vROps manager for first use.

For vRealize Part 1 – Deploy vRealize Operations Manager 6.5

To access newly deployed appliance, open any web browser and go to https://FQDN or IP/admin, For me Its https://vropm01.vgyan.local/admin

Once the admin page is opened, select New Installation.

Click Next in the getting started page.

Set the Administrator account password,

User name: by default admin

New password: ******

Re-enter password: ******

Click Next to continue:-

We have to a choose certificate, I am going with default certificate, if you have specific certificate for vROps you can install the same.

In the deployment settings, provide cluster master node name and NTP server address.

Cluster Master Node Name: vROPM-Master

NTP server address: ntp.vgyan.local and click on add button.

Click Next to continue:-

Click Finish to complete the initial setup.

Once the initial configuration completed, It will ask you to login to the admin portal,Login with local admin user and password which we given in the initial configuration.

Now we are in vRealize operations manager administration portal.

Under the cluster status click on Start vRealize Operational Manager.

Click Yes to start the application.

Once the application started we will be redirected to vRealize operations manager portal.

for me its https://vropm01.vgyan.local/ui/

Use admin credentials and click on Login.

Now we are going to configure vRealize Operations manager.

Click Next to continue:-

Accept the EULA.

Click Next to continue:-

I am not going to activate vROps now, will activate it later.

Select the product evaluation and click next to continue:-

I am going to join the VMware Customer Experience Improvement program, it will help to improve the product.

Click Finish to complete the vRealize Operations Manager configuration.

Now we completed the vROps Configuration and redirected to vRealize Operations Manager Web client.

We will discuss more about vRealize Operations Manager  in upcoming posts.
