To protect the vRealize Operations Manager virtual machines from a host-level failure, configure vSphere DRS to run both the virtual machines of the analytics cluster and of the remote collectors on different hosts in the management cluster.

You use two anti-affinity rules for the analytics virtual machines: one for the analytics nodes and one for the remote collector nodes. This rule configuration also accommodates the case when you place a host from the management cluster in maintenance mode.
