To minimize system downtime and data loss in the event of failures, administrators must back up the vRealize Business Standard installation regularly. If your system fails, you can recover it by restoring the last known working backup. Back up vRealize Business by exporting or cloning the virtual appliance. Use backups to restore the virtual appliance.

  • Verify that the VMs provisioned for VMware Aria Automation and VMware Automation Orchestrator are visible in vRealize Business and that vRealize Business can calculate the cost for the VMs.
