- Restoring the default dashboards:
Problem: After installing the vRA Mangement Pack, the default dashboards were not shown up and for this we figured out that post_install of Management Pack didn't run. To resolve this we manually imported the dashboards
The below is an example for restoring the vRA default dashboards on vROPs
- Locate the dashboard file location: /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/vCACAdapter3/conf/dashboards/Dashboards.json
- Execute the import command by passing the dashboard json file on vROps node:
vrops-mstrn-01:/usr/lib/vmware-vcops/tools/opscli # ./ops-cli.sh dashboard import all /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/vCACAdapter3/conf/dashboards/Dashboards.json

After this log-in back into the vROps UI and you can notice that all default dashboards are back.
Will update this blog with more problems and resoultions.
