After you install the vRealize Operations for Published Applications solution, you must create an instance of the vRealize Operations for Published Applications adapter in vRealize Operations Manager.

About this task

You can create a single vRealize Operations for Published Applications adapter instance to monitor multiple XenDesktop sites. If you need to create multiple vRealize Operations for Published Applications adapter instances, you must create each adapter instance on a unique cluster node or remote collector.

When you restart a vRealize Operations for Published Applications adapter instance, it takes several minutes before the vRealize Operations for Published Applications desktop agent and broker agent send information to the vRealize Operations for Published Applications adapter.
