Solutions are delivered as management pack PAK files that you upload, license, and install.

When you add solutions, you add adapters that manage communication and integration between vRealize Operations Manager and other products, applications, and functionality.

On the left, select Administration > Solutions. On the right, select the Solutions tab, and click the green plus sign + in the toolbar.

The wizard includes three pages where you locate and upload a PAK file, accept the EULA and install, and review the installation.
