About this task

You can integrate vRealize Log Insight with vRealize Operations Manager vApp and vRealize Operations Manager Installable. Integrating with vApp install version 6.0 and above and Installable (Windows, Linux) version 5.8.5 and above needs additional changes to the vRealize Operations Manager configuration. Depending on the installed version, see Install the vRealize Log Insight Adapter in vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.5 Standalone (Windows/Linux) or Install the vRealize Log Insight Management Pack (Adapter) in vRealize Operations Manager 6.x and Later.


One instance of vRealize Operations Manager supports launch in context for only one instance of vRealize Log Insight. Because vRealize Log Insight does not check whether other instances are already registered with vRealize Operations Manager, you might override the settings of another user.


  • Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight Web user interface as a user with the Edit Admin permission. The URL format is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the vRealize Log Insight virtual appliance.

  • Verify that you know the IP address or host name of the target vRealize Operations Manager instance.

  • Depending on the vRealize Operations Manager license that you own, verify that you have minimum user credentials. See Minimum Required Permissions for a Local or Active Directory User Account

  • Verify that the version of vRealize Operations Manager is 5.8.5 or later.
