The operations management layer focuses on the components used for day-to-day management of the Cloud Foundation environment.
Cloud Foundation automatically deploys vRealize Log Insight in the management domain during a deployment. Other components within the management domain are automatically configured to utilize this vRealize Log Insight instance. With the appropriate licensing in place, this vRealize Log Insight Instance can also be utilized by other workload domains. You must define the hostnames and IP addresses for the vRealize Log Insight components prior to beginning the deployment of Cloud Foundation.
Cloud Foundation automates the deployment of vRealize Operations. This optional component is deployed within the management domain. Deployment of vRealize Operations also deploys a virtual machine for vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) and a edge device used for load balancing within the management domain. These two components are shared between vRealize Operations and vRealize Automation and are automatically installed if either product is deployed. Hostname and IP information is required to be defined for the vRealize Operations components to be installed within the solution and the shared components if not previously deployed.
vRealize Operations and vRealize Automation are not supported for NSX-T workload domains yet.
The following table provides an example of the information to be collected for the operations management layer, including the shared components with vRealize Automation. If you are deploying both vRealize Operations and vRealize Automation, the shared components are only installed once. This example uses a fictional DNS domain called
rainpole.local for illustration purposes. Modify the sample information to conform to your site's configuration.
