Before backing up the Operations Management Layer, follow these guidelines.

vRealize Operations Manager Backup Prerequisites

Verify that the following prerequisites are met before you back up vRealize Operations Manager nodes:

  • Do not quiesce the file system.

  • Use a host name that is resolvable in DNS and a static IP address for all nodes.

  • All nodes must be powered on and accessible during backup.

  • Back up the entire VM. You must back up all VMDK files that are part of the virtual appliance.

  • Do not stop the cluster while performing the backup.

vRealize Log Insight Backup Prerequisites

Verify that the following prerequisites are met before you back up vRealize Log Insight nodes:

  • Ensure no configuration problems on source and target sites exist before performing the backup and restore operations.

  • Disable quiesced snapshots, as vRealize Log Insight does not support them.

  • Use static IP addresses for all nodes in a vRealize Log Insight cluster.

  • Use an FQDN for all nodes in the vRealize Log Insight cluster.
