Hi Joffrey,

We will take as a requirement for our next release. 

Thanks

Vikramarjuna

Any plans to ever support vROPS integration with UCS Central and not just the individual domains?

 

Thanks.

Beginner

Is this going to support vROPs 7.5?

Is this going to support UCS 4.0(4) series code?

When is scheduled update for this to happen to support either/both of the above?

Beginner

I am running version 7.5 of vROps and 3.23(h) of UCS. When testing the connection for the management pack I am getting the following error, "Unable to establish a valid connection to the target system. Test failed! Error(551) - Authentication failed".

 

I have a local read only account configured within UCS that I can login with.

I am using the local administrator password for the vROps connection. 

 

Here is an example of my credentials.

Any ideas??

 

Thanks!!

Beginner
I think you just need to change how you call the account. I user a readonly account from our UCS environment. The UCS username is simply: readonly I think this should fix you. I am running this on vROPs 7.5, but it is not offically supported and vROPs 8.0 is to be out in just a month or so, so waiting to see if/when that will be supported.
Beginner

Having the same problems as others in that I get the following error in vROPS when trying to connect.

Unable to establish a valid connection to the target system. Test failed! Error(551) - Authentication failed

 

Have tried using different formats for the UCS username to no avail.

Any help is appreciated

 

Thanks

Beginner

Is this package being updated for vROPs 8.0? I have attempted to install it and get the below error:

Beginner

Is there any development for a release that works with vRealize 8.x? 

Cisco Employee

There are no plans to support vRealize Operations 8.x

Beginner

Hi reswaran,

 

any reason for not supporting vRealize Operations 8.x?

Any alternatives?

 

Cheers,

Fred

Beginner

Any reason for not supporting vRealize Operations 8.x?

Repeating the question as it has been almost 2 months with no response

Beginner

Only guessing, but since Blue Medora has a UCS plugin for vROPs, I assume Cisco has decided they don't need to put out their own.  Seems a lot of 3rd Party plug-ins are going that direction.

Beginner

Any reason for abandoning vROps and this community?  I have tried the Blue Medora plugin and the Cisco Plugin was better.  Will Cisco be supporting vMwares VMware vRealize® Suite Lifecycle Manager™ or is Cisco just ghosting anything VMware now?

Cisco Employee

Hi All, 2.0(5) of the plugin which supports vROps 8.0 and 8.1 is now released. 

 

Thanks for your continued support and interest in the plugin.

 

Regards

Vikramarjuna

Beginner

Does anyone know if the "UCS Management Pack 2.0(5) for VMWare vRealize Operations Manager" also supports vROPs 8.2.0?

 

Thanks

  Randy
