This doesn't seem like this should be this difficult, but I am having an issue with deploying the vRealize Operations Linux appliance. I downloaded it twice to make sure the ova file is good, and I deploy it and fill in the configuration, and deploy it. No problem. However, when I power it on it comes up showing the ip address I gave it, but the url is https://localhost.localdom, and will not ping or connect. I checked the DNS and forward and reverse lookup are working fine. I see nothing that should be causing this. The other thing I see is the status in the vCenter client is shown as "Available". Does anyone have any ideas?
Have you provided correct DNS server IP address to your vRealize Operations Manager during the deployment ? If you have create the vRealize Operations Manager record on DNS prior to the deployment, durign the first vROPs boot, it should resolve the vROPs IP address to that record and name the host name of the vROPs with correct name.
Yes the ip address is correct. The DNS entries are correct and resolve properly other than on the vrops appliance. They were created by the network team prior to the deployment of the appliance. From what I see everything is set up properly, but the appliance is not functioning for some reason. I have deployed other appliances before and never had these issues. It's strange.
