In this first blog of vRealize Operation Manager series, I’ll be showing you how to deploy vRealize Operation Manager in an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide. Lets Start..
First of all You will need to download vRealize software, from Vmware Software Manager or from your my.vmware.com account. If you have a Partner Central account you should also have access to time-limited evaluation license keys for most VMware products.
Step 1. Login to your vSphere Web Client and Select your vCenter Server and Right click on your Cluster and select option “Deploy OVF Template”
Step 2. Provide the URL for the OVF File else Locate the Folder for your OVF Template via clicking brwsde
Step 3. Verify the OVF template details and click Next
Step 4. Accept the EULA and click Next.
Step 5. Provide a display name for the Log Insight VM and select the folder for the VM object. Click Next.
Step 6. select a configuration for the virtual appliance. Choices made here will determine such things as the number of vCPUs and the vRAM size. For a production deployment you should refer to the official sizing guidelines (https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2093783) but for our purposes we will choose the Extra Small Configuration (4 vCPUs, 16 GB vRAM). Click Next.
Step 7. Select a datastore for the virtual appliance. Here I have chosen a datastore configured on an SAN device and selected the thin provisioning option. In a production environment, you would probably want to thick provision. Click Next.
Step 8. Select a network for the virtual appliance to attach to and click Next.
Step 9. Provide hostname and IP details. Note that you can also use DHCP. Click Next.
Step 10.Review your settings, check the Power on after deployment option, and click Finish.
Finally you are done. When the console of the vRealize Operations Manager, it shows the blue welcome screen then you are good to start configuring the appliance.
The Deployment of the Vrealize operation Manager is completed now and in next blog post will learn how to configure the vRealize operation manager in your Environment. Keep reading for the next post..
