    Cluster name for liagent.ini

    nem1s1s Enthusiast
      I can't seem to find  the Cluster name for a vROps Cluster. I've checked both /admin and /ui to no avail. I need this for the vmw_vr_ops_clustername tag in liagent.ini

          You can find cluster name in  ui/Cluster Management Page and admin/System Status pages - it's just "Node Name" for master node. Or this info can be requestd (starting from vRops 6.5) by using CASA Public Rest API: GET /casa/cluster/config

            "You can find cluster name in  ui/Cluster Management Page and admin/System Status pages"

            Negative. I can't see it in any place you have mentioned - hence why I posted in this forum. I find it bizarre it can't be found anywhere. The liagent.ini file calls for Cluster name (highlighted in red below)

            Interesting this site mentions Cluster name "can be anything you like"

            • vmw_vr_ops_clustername – this is the *name* of your vRealize Operations cluster. This can be anything you like here and can be used to distinguish one cluster from another if you have multiples. Below, it is <YOUR CLUSTER NAME HERE>

            vROps 6.4 - Sample

            Starting from 6.4 version of vROps, the LI Agent 3.6 is bundled and "common" sections can be configured which makes using of new template much easier: if previously tags need to be updated in all the sections, now update is necessary to be done in a single place, in a [common|filelog] section only.
            For vRealize Operations Manager 6.4 and higher  /etc/liagent.ini file need to be modified and the following section need to be added:
             
            [common|filelog]
            tags={"vmw_vr_ops_appname":"vROps", "vmw_vr_ops_clustername":"Cluster1", "vmw_vr_ops_clusterrole":"Master", "vmw_vr_ops_nodename":"Node1", "vmw_vr_ops_hostname":"1.2.3.4"}
             
            Below are the details about each of the tags.  
            vmw_vr_ops_appname:value should be set to "vROps"
            vmw_vr_ops_clustername: this tag need to be set with the same value for all vROps cluster nodes 
            vmw_vr_ops_clusterrole: the tag value to be either the Master, Replica, Data, or Remote Collector based on the node's role in the vROps cluster
            vmw_vr_ops_nodename: this tag can be updated
            vmw_vr_ops_hostname: typically contains the IP or FQDN of the vRealize Operations Manager node                     
            Log Insight agent configuration needs to be done at the end point (in this case vR Ops node) as well as at the Log Insight server.

              I've just re-read this and believe there is no Cluster name;

              this tag need to be set with the same value for all vROps cluster nodes

              What I make of the above statement is to keep the clustername tag consistent per liagent.ini for the vROps Cluster Nodes

              [common|filelog]
              tags={"vmw_vr_ops_appname":"vROps", "vmw_vr_ops_clustername":"Cluster1", "vmw_vr_ops_clusterrole":"Master", "vmw_vr_ops_nodename":"Node1", "vmw_vr_ops_hostname":"1.2.3.4"}

              Below are the details about each of the tags.
              vmw_vr_ops_appname:value should be set to "vROps"
              vmw_vr_ops_clustername: this tag need to be set with the same value for all vROps cluster nodes
              vmw_vr_ops_clusterrole: the tag value to be either the Master, Replica, Data, or Remote Collector based on the node's role in the vROps cluster
              vmw_vr_ops_nodename: this tag can be updated
              vmw_vr_ops_hostname: typically contains the IP or FQDN of the vRealize Operations Manager node

              [common|filelog]
              tags={"vmw_vr_ops_appname":"vROps", "vmw_vr_ops_clustername":"Cluster1", "vmw_vr_ops_clusterrole":"Master", "vmw_vr_ops_nodename":"Node1", "vmw_vr_ops_hostname":"1.2.3.4"}
               
              Below are the details about each of the tags.  
              vmw_vr_ops_appname:value should be set to "vROps"
              vmw_vr_ops_clustername: this tag need to be set with the same value for all vROps cluster nodes 
              vmw_vr_ops_clusterrole: the tag value to be either the Master, Replica, Data, or Remote Collector based on the node's role in the vROps cluster
              vmw_vr_ops_nodename: this tag can be updated
              vmw_vr_ops_hostname: typically contains the IP or FQDN of the vRealize Operations Manager node

                As the doc states this can be anything

                 

                If (in our case) you have more than one vrops cluster this enables you to distinguish between the two when doing your quarries other wise both clusters would return results. Just put a meaningful name in this field that represents your cluster.

                 

                If you have a 4 node cluster then put the same value in for each node
