To protect the vRealize Operations Manager virtual machines from a host-level failure, configure vSphere DRS to run the virtual machines of the analytics cluster and the remote collectors on different hosts in the first cluster in the management domain.

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