Good afternoon everyone!
Having a little bit of an issue with vCO at the moment. I implemented a couple of clusters for my hosts that are using DRS. After doing this, I noticed health and resource data are now missing from my Operations manager dashboard. One of my hosts have also disappeared from the view also.
Right now we are waiting to see if vCO is just collecting data for the new setup.
The proper abbrev was vCOps, now is vROps. vCO is now vRO.
#1-3 assumes you actually had it collecting properly in the first place.
Have you gone back to the beginning and ensured you're not collecting from vCenter using a limited-permission/scope account? If the account cannot see the resources in vCenter, vROps won't collect them.
Thank you for the response
I apologize for the lack of information in my initial post, but here are some additional details
I am running a fully licensed vCenter Operations Manager (Enterprise) appliance (deployed .ova that deployed the vApp as a whole) 5.8.4, all of the other elements (vCenter, ESXi, etc) are licensed also
We were fully collecting data from the environments prior to my implementation of the DRS clusters within the Datacenters. The set up prior to the deployment of the DRS clusters were as follows (all of the elements in the vCenter are on the same subnet and were successfully pinging eachother):
ESXi host (hosting operations appliance vApp)
ESXi host (hosting vCenter)
Now in this setup we were able to collect Health, Risk, and Efficiency data without issue and were getting some great results for future planning (that was running for about two months). The setup was changed to this:
ESXi Host (without DRS)
All hosts with operations vApp still on the host it was on previously
Now I noticed when implementing the DRS cluster, it removed the vApp that was exclusive to the operations .ova that was deployed.
After DRS was setup on the hosts stated (maybe a day or two after) there was a complete loss of data collection. I looked around VMware and the internet and unfortunately could not come up with any documentation stating the issues/risks with running DRS and Operations Manager together.
Again thank you for the response and any help is appreciated.
And you can log in to the vSphere and Custom UI ok? If so, you'll likely see errors in the collector / adapter / vmware_* adapter instance logs... which can be accessed from the Custom UI's Support > Logs area. It sounds like you'll want to run the vApp repair steps to fix the vApp (adding the VMs back in to it), as the VAs get their network config from that. Between these things, I'm thinking you'll get closer to where you want to be.
