By importing data, an established or production version of vRealize Operations Manager can assume the monitoring of a vCenter Operations Manager deployment.

You cannot migrate vCenter Operations Manager directly to this version of vRealize Operations Manager. Instead, you follow a two-step process:

  1. Migrate and import vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.x into vRealize Operations Manager 6.0.x as described in the version 6.0.x documentation.

  2. Use the vRealize Operations Manager Software Update option to update vRealize Operations Manager 6.0.x to this version.

Note:

Make sure your vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.x and vRealize Operations Manager 6.0.x instances are on the same physical network. Otherwise the data import may not work.
