You can migrate from vRealize Log Insight (on-premise) to vRealize Log Insight Cloud by using vRealize Cloud Connect. Ensure that you meet the following requirements before you start the migration process.

  • Sign up for and log in to vRealize Log Insight Cloud.
    To log in, you need a VMware ID. Set up a VMware account with your corporate email address at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/login.
    • If you are a VMware Cloud, VMware Cloud on Dell, VMware Cloud on AWS, or VMware MSP (with VMware Cloud) user and you need an extension beyond the free trial subscription period (30 days + 15 days grace period) or after the expiration of the trial, contact help-vrlic@vmware.com.
      Note: By default, the vRealize Log Insight Cloud trial instance is provisioned in US. For other regions, contact help-vrlic@vmware.com.
    • If you are a non-VMware Cloud or VMware MSP (without VMware Cloud) user, sign up for the vRealize Log Insight Cloud trial service.
      Note:
      • To request for the trial service, you must use the same email ID that you entered when you created your VMware ID.
      • Ensure that you are not opted out of VMware marketing emails and check your junk folder for any email communications from VMware. If you do not receive any activation links within one or two days, contact help-vrlic@vmware.com to get the manual link from VMware Cloud Services.
      • By default, the vRealize Log Insight Cloud trial instance is provisioned in US. For other regions, contact help-vrlic@vmware.com.
