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.
