After installing VMware Integrated OpenStack, you can integrate it with the Endpoint Operations Management Agent and vRealize Operations Manager.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. If you have not already, set up a vRealize Operations Manager server.

    Remember the user name, password, and IP address.

    See the vRealize Operations Manager documentation.

  2. Using SSH, log in to the VMware Integrated OpenStack manager.
  3. Obtain the Endpoint Operations Management Agent installation file.and modify the agent properties file.
    1. Go to https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=VROPS-621&productId=563&rPId=11131.
    2. Download the installation binary for End Point Operations Linux Agent - 64 bit.

      The complete download file name is vRealize-Endpoint-Operations-Management-Agent-x86-64-linux-6.2.1-3720494.tar.gz.

  4. Modify the agent properties file.
    1. Untar the downloaded file.
    2. Copy the conf/agent.properties file.
    3. Modify the copy of the conf/agent.properties file to match your vRealize Operations Manager deployment.
      agent.setup.serverIP=[vREALIZE OPERATIONS MANAGER SERVER ADDRESS]
      agent.setup.serverSSLPort=[vREALIZE OPERATIONS MANAGER SERVER SSL PORT] 
      agent.setup.serverLogin=[vREALIZE OPERATIONS MANAGER ADMIN USER NAME]
      agent.setup.serverPword=[vREALIZE OPERATIONS MANAGER ADMIN PASSWORD]
      agent.setup.serverCertificateThumbprint=[vREALIZE OPERATIONS MANAGER SERVER THUMBPRINT]
      • The default for the agent.setup.serverSSLPort parameter is 443.

      • For the agent.setup.serverCertificateThumbprint, specify either the SHA1 or SHA256 algorithm in hexadecimal format.

    4. Save the copy of the conf/agent.properties file.
  5. Install the Endpoint Operations Management Agent in VMware Integrated OpenStack.
    sudo viocli epops install -s \ 
    vRealize-Endpoint-Operations-Management-Agent-x86-64-linux-6.2.1-3720494.tar.gz \
    -c agent.properties
  6. Confirm the installation was successful.
    1. Log in to your vRealize Operations Manager server.
    2. In the left pane, select Administration > Inventory Explorer.

      You can identify the new OpenStack resources by their node names, such as controller 01, controller02, compute01, and so on.

    3. In Inventory Explorer, select EP Ops Adapter Resources Group > Linux.

      You can identify the list of VMware Integrated OpenStack nodes: such as controller 01, controller02, and so on. If the VMware Integrated OpenStack nodes do not appear, ensure that the parameters in the agent.properties file are correct. If necessary, reconfigure the agent.

      sudo viocli epops reconfig -c your_agent.properties
