imageIn this part we will go over the basic configuration of the appliance deployed in part 1.  We had deployed the ovf to vSphere environment. Next step is to login to vCenter Operations Manager main application:


Basic Configuration of vCOPS with the Initial Setup Wizard

Login to vCenter Operations Manager main application:

https://IP/admin with default credentials admin:admin

Enter details as requested. This will be the vCenter information hosting the vcops appliance. This step is optional:

  vCenter information hosting the vcops appliance

Password resets: admin:admin and root:vmware

Password resets

vCenter Server to Monitor

vCenter Server to Monitor

When security alert screen comes up, click YES to trust to this server.

Once the setup completes, you should see the main manager administration screen.

Now, you should also be able to see vCenter Operations Manager icon within the vCenter:

vCenter Operations Manager icon

By default when there is no license, vcops will be running in free Foundation (unlicensed) version. To Assign a license, go the vCenter server being monitored and click on “Licencing”. It will be under ASSETs. Here you can change its license. I had to update the registration in the admin console for vcops to take the new license.
