If you have deployed vRealize Suite components, then you can connect your vRealize Operations and vRealize Log Insight deployments to your workload domains in VMware Cloud Foundation.

When connected, vRealize Operations and vRealize Log Insight monitor and collect data on the workload domains in VMware Cloud Foundation.

Note: This version of VMware Cloud Foundation does not support connecting vRealize Automation to workload domains through the SDDC Manager Dashboard. Use the vRealize Automation console instead.

For more information about vRealize Automation, see "How do I get started with vRealize Automation using the VMware Cloud Foundation Quickstart" in the Getting Started with vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly in the vRealize Automation Product Documentation.

By default, the management workload domain is connected to vRealize Operations and vRealize Log Insight.
Note: You can create only one connection at a time.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that one or more workload domains have been created.
  • Verify that vRealize Operations and vRealize Log Insight are deployed and operational.

Procedure

  1. On the SDDC Manager Dashboard, navigate to Administration > vRealize Suite.
  2. To connect your vRealize Operations deployment to workload domains:
    1. Select vRealize Operations.
    2. Under Connect Workload Domains..., click Connect.

      The Connect to Workload Domains wizard opens to the Modify Connection page. This page lists all currently configured workload domains. You can connect vRealize Operations to each of the workload domains.

      For information about configuring NSX-T in vRealize Operations, see "Add NSX-T Adapters in vRealize Operations Manager in Region A" in the Deployment of Cloud Operations and Automation in the First Region in the VMware Validated Design Documentation.
  3. To connect your vRealize Log Insight deployment to workload domains:
    1. Select vRealize Log Insight.
    2. Under Connect Workload Domains..., click Connect.

      The Connect to Workload Domains wizard opens to the Modify Connection page. This page lists all currently configured workload domains. You can connect vRealize Log Insight to each of the workload domains.

  4. Select Enable for the desired workload domains.
  5. Review the connection and click Finish.
  6. (Optional) Confirm the modified connection in vRealize Operations or vRealize Log Insight.
    1. On the vRealize Operations or vRealize Log Insight page, click the product name link below the page title.
      The vRealize Operations or vRealize Log Insight administrative opens the Home page.
    2. For vRealize Operations, navigate to Administration > Solutions.
      The Solutions page displays the status of adapters for solutions connected to vRealize Operations. When successfully connected, the status indicates Data Receiving.
      Note: You must refresh the Solutions page to update the status.
