To provide additional resilience for NTP and to support disaster recovery between VMware Cloud Foundation instances, reconfigure vRealize Operations Manager time synchronization by adding the NTP servers for each domain in the recovery VMware Cloud Foundation instance.

For the following procedure, use the VMware Cloud Foundation Planning and Preparation Workbook.

UI Procedure

  1. Log in to the vRealize Operations Manager cluster VIP by using the operations interface at https://<vrealize_operations_manager_fqdn> with a user assigned the Administrator role.

  3. For vRealize Operations Manager 8.6 and later, in the left pane, select Administration and click Cluster management.

  4. From the Actions drop-down menu, select Network Time Protocol Settings .

  5. In Global network time protocol settings dialog box, in the NTP server address text box, enter the NTP server according to your VMware Cloud Foundation Planning and Preparation Workbook, and click Add.

  6. Click OK.

PowerShell Procedure

  1. Start Windows PowerShell.

  2. Replace the values in the sample code with values from your VMware Cloud Foundation Planning and Preparation Workbook and run the commands in the PowerShell console.

    $sddcManagerFqdn = ""
    $sddcManagerUser = "administrator@vsphere.local"
    $sddcManagerPass = "VMw@re1!"
    $environmentName = "xint-env"
    $ntpServer = ""
  3. Perform the configuration by running the command in the PowerShell console.

    Add-vROPSNtpServer -server $sddcManagerFqdn -user $sddcManagerUser -pass $sddcManagerPass -environmentName $environmentName -ntpServer $ntpServer
