You have to protect the vRealize Operations Manager virtual machines from a host-level failure. Configure vSphere DRS to run both the VMs of the analytics cluster and the VMs of the remote collectors on different hosts in the management cluster.

About this task

You use two anti-affinity rules for the vRealize Operations Manager virtual machines: one for the analytics cluster nodes and one for the remote collector nodes. This rule configuration also accommodates the case when you place a host from the management cluster in maintenance mode.

Procedure

  1. Log in to vCenter Server by using the vSphere Web Client.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local/vsphere-client.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.

      Setting

      Value

      User name

      administrator@vsphere.local

      Password

      vsphere_admin_password

  2. From the Home menu, select Hosts and Clusters.
  3. Navigate to the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local vCenter Server object, and under the sfo01-m01dc data center object select the sfo01-m01-mgmt01 cluster.
  4. Click the Configure tab.
  5. Under the Configuration group of settings, select VM/Host Rules
  6. Create the new anti-affinity rules for the vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster and remote collectors using the following settings.

    Setting

    Value for the Analytics Nodes

    Value for the Remote Collectors

    1. In the VM/Host Rules list, click Add above the rules list. 
    2. In the Create VM/Host Rule dialog box, add the new anti-affinity rule for the virtual machines of the vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster, and click OK.
    3. Repeat the step to add the anti-affinity rule for the remote collector virtual machines of the vRealize Operations Manager.
