Start the deployment of vRealize Operations Manager in Region A by deploying the nodes of the analytics cluster and the remote collector nodes.

1

Before you deploy vRealize Operations Manager, verify that your environment satisfies the requirements for this deployment. 

2

Use the vSphere Web Client to deploy each vRealize Operations Manager node as a virtual appliance on the management cluster in Region A.

3

After you deploy the virtual appliance for the master node of the vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster, enable its administration role in the cluster. 

4

After you deploy a virtual appliance instance for the master replica node and configure a master node in the cluster, enable the cluster node functionality of the master replica node and join it to the analytics cluster.

5

After you deploy the virtual appliance for a data node of the vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster, enable its role in the cluster. 

6

After you deploy and enable the roles of the analytics cluster nodes, use the vSphere Web Client to deploy each of the two virtual appliances for the remote collectors in Region A. In a multi-region environment, you deploy remote collectors to forward data from the vCenter Server instances in Region A to the analytics cluster also to support failover of the analytics cluster.

7

After you deploy the virtual appliances for the remote collector nodes on the Management vCenter Server, configure the settings of the remote collectors and connect them to the analytics cluster.

8

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.

9

After you deploy the virtual appliances for the analytics cluster nodes and remote collector nodes, enable high availability in the analytics cluster by assigning the replica role to the vrops-repln-02 node, and start the analytics cluster.

10

After you deploy and start vRealize Operations Manager in Region A, you assign a valid license.

11

After you start vRealize Operations Manager and assign it a license, join the remote collectors in a group for adapter resiliency in the cases where the collector experiences network interruption or becomes unavailable.
