Does vRealize Operations Manager have the ability to gather historical config data for VMs? Such as what was done, (add mem, increase drive, etc), and by whom?
I dont think vrops will do this by its self. Several years ago i use vrealise configuration manager to do what you are looking for as a POC but not looked into it for a wile. You may also get log insight to do what you want as it collects vcenter logs to. Depending on your licencing you may get these two products
That's pretty close. That will show CPU and memory changes, and if the number of disks on the VM change, so that in itself is helpful. It doesn't give info on who made the changes. I'd also like to see more detail on events where someone adds space to a disk, or adds a new disk. Today these are generic events and if SDRS is enabled show up as SDRS events and not VM events. I have a feeling some big changes to vCenter need to happen before those types of events work in the same way. Thanks for this article though, it does help.
