How to Install VCOPS (Vmware vCenter Operation Manager) 5.6

Vmware has released the new version of VCOPS. If you installed it before, this experience will help you to install it again because steps are almost identical. First of all, you should download OVF installation package from Vmware web site and then you can import it to your vCenter. Secondly, importing the server is completed, then you can configure it.

During the importing you will type server name and two IP addresses. One is for User interface and second IP address is the analytics which is server. I recommend that not use DHCP, assign static IP address to these options.

Go to the download web site of Vmware and then download the latest version

After the download is completed, connect to your vCenter server and go to file>Deploy OVF template and then choose your OVF package where you saved it.

another article I explained how to configure IP Pool for VCOPS


Well done all. Next chapter is the configuration
