By importing data, an established or production version of vRealize Operations Manager can assume the monitoring of a vCenter Operations Manager deployment.

You cannot migrate vCenter Operations Manager directly to this version of vRealize Operations Manager. Instead, you follow a two-step process:

1

Migrate and import vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.x into vRealize Operations Manager 6.0.x as described in the version 6.0.x documentation.

2

Use the vRealize Operations Manager Software Update option to update vRealize Operations Manager 6.0.x to this version.

Note

Make sure your vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.x and vRealize Operations Manager 6.0.x instances are on the same physical network. Otherwise the data import may not work. Data import process fails when source (vCenter Operations Manager 5.x) is separated from the destination vRealize Operations Manager 6.x environment by a slow network connection (WAN). Data import over a connection that is slower than LAN speed is not supported. For more information, see the Knowledge Base article 2141964.
