After you have upgraded the analytics cluster, reconfigure the NSX-vSphere Adapter instances to use the svc-vrops-nsx service account that is specifically dedicated to collecting data about NSX objects from NSX Manager and vCenter Server. This version of the validated design introduces a separate service account for vRealize Operations Manager for each integration with another management product.
