Veritas Operations Manager

Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) is a comprehensive business solution for monitoring, operating, and reporting on data center environments using Storage Foundation and Symantec Cluster Server. This section lists the requirements for installing VOM 6.0.

Component introduction
Component Description Choosing criteria
Management Server Management Server is the central piece of the Veritas Operations Manager architecture. Management Server is responsible for displaying and managing the information that is reported from the managed hosts, storage, SAN fabrics and Virtualization environment. The host should meet or exceed recommended system requirements. See Veritas Operations Manager Management Server Release Notes.
The host should provide data security and space for a growing database as Management Server discovers new managed hosts and monitors network events. Ideally, the host should have RAID-protected storage and the capacity to grow its file systems.
Clients that connect to Management Server using the Veritas Operations Manager console (Web browser) must be able to access the host.
Managed host A typical Veritas Operations Manager deployment consists of a management server and multiple managed hosts. A managed host is a server that is configured either with or without an agent to become a part of the Veritas Operations Manager infrastructure. A managed host may be configured to discover the information about servers, storage, Storage Area Network (SAN), and virtualization infrastructure. Once a managed host is configured, it collects the information and transmits this information to Management Server. For managed hosts that do not have Storage Foundation or Symantec Storage Foundation and High Availability, the server information can be discovered in two ways: By installing an agent on the managed hosts or by agentless discovery using SSH (for UNIX/Linux hosts) or WMI (for Windows hosts).
Note: Agentless discovery is not supported on the hosts that have any of the Symantec Storage Foundation High Availability products installed on them.
Before you install a managed host, make sure that it meets or exceeds the recommended system requirements. See Veritas Operations Manager Release Notes.
