For a dual-region monitoring implementation, after you deploy the analytics cluster and the remote collectors in Region A, complete the installation and configuration of vRealize Operations Manager for Region B.
Deploy vRealize Operations Manager in Region B In Region B, deploy two remote collector nodes for vRealize Operations Manager to monitor the Management and Compute vCenter Server instances, NSX for vSphere, and storage components in SDDC.
Move vRealize Operations Manager Remote Collector Nodes to Virtual Machine Folder in Region B Use the vSphere Web Client to move the vRealize Operations Manager remote collectors nodes in Region B to virtual machine folders for organization and ease of management.
Configure a vSphere DRS Anti-Affinity Rule for vRealize Operations Manager Remote Collectors in Region B To protect the vRealize Operations Manager virtual machines from a host-level failure, configure vSphere DRS to run the remote collector virtual machines on different hosts in the management cluster in Region B.
Configure the Load Balancer for vRealize Operations Manager in Region B Configure load balancing for the analytics cluster on the dedicated NSX Edge services gateway for Region B. Load balancing must be available if a failover of the analytics cluster from Region A occurs.
Group Remote Collector Nodes in Region B After you deploy the remote collector nodes for vRealize Operations Manager in Region B, join the remote collectors in a group for adapter resiliency in the cases where the collector experiences network interruption or becomes unavailable.
Add an Authentication Source for the Child Active Directory in Region B Connect vRealize Operations Manager to the child Active Directory lax01.rainpole.local for central user management and access control in Region B.
Add vCenter Adapter Instances to vRealize Operations Manager for Region B After you deploy the remote collector nodes of vRealize Operations Manager in Region B, pair a vCenter Adapter instance with each vCenter Server instance in the region.
Connect vRealize Operations Manager to the NSX Managers in Region B Configure the vRealize Operations Management Pack for NSX for vSphere to monitor the NSX networking services deployed in each vSphere cluster in Region B and view the vSphere hosts in the NSX transport zones. You can also access end-to-end logical network topologies between any two virtual machines or NSX objects for better visibility into logical connectivity. Physical host and network device relationship in this view also helps in isolating problems in the logical or physical network.
Add Storage Devices Adapters in vRealize Operations Manager for Region B Configure a Storage Devices adapter for Region B to collect monitoring data about the storage devices in the SDDC. Each adapter communicates with a vCenter Server instance to retrieve data about the storage devices from the vCenter Server inventory.
Enable vSAN Monitoring in vRealize Operations Manager in Region B Configure the vRealize Operations Management Pack for vSAN to view the vSAN topology in Region B, and to monitor the capacity and problems.
Configure NTP Server on vRealize Operations Manager Cluster in Region B To avoid the misconfiguration of vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster in case of failover to Region B during disaster recovery, add the NTP server in Region B to the time synchronization settings of vRealize Operations Manager.
