To finish a new vRealize Operations Manager installation, you log in and complete a one-time process to license the product and add solutions for the kinds of resources to monitor and manage.

Create and configure the new cluster of vRealize Operations Manager nodes.

Click the Start vRealize Operations Manager button to start the cluster.

1

In a Web browser, navigate to the name or IP address of the master node.

If you configured nodes and started the cluster, the product takes you to the login page.

2

Enter the username admin and the password that you defined when you configured the master node, and click Login.

Because this is the first time logging in, a one-time wizard appears.

3

Click New Environment and click Next.

4

Read and accept the End User License Agreement, and click Next.

5

Enter your product key, or select the option to run vRealize Operations Manager in evaluation mode.

Your level of product license determines what solutions you may install to monitor and manage resources.

Standard. vCenter only

Advanced. vCenter plus other infrastructure solutions

Enterprise. All solutions

vRealize Operations Manager does not license managed objects in the same way that vSphere does, so there is no object count when you license the product.

6

If you entered a product key, click Validate License Key.

7

Click Next, and click Finish.

The one-time wizard finishes, and the vRealize Operations Manager interface appears.

Use the vRealize Operations Manager interface to configure the solutions that are included with the product.
