    Hey Viktor – great post! Just one quick note, Log Insight also accepts syslog over 1514/ssl(tcp).

    Just upgraded to vCO 5.7.1 from 5.6. Are there new licenses needed?
    When I try to license the asset in vSphere Client (vCenter 5.1) with a vCenter Operations Suite 5.6 Enterprise license it always tells me “Invalid License Key: License file not found”.

      As far as I’m concerned the license should be still valid. I am reading something about licensing issues in this article: http://emeirell.blogspot.nl/2012/12/vcops-56-license-file-not-found.html. Maybe it helps!

        I stumbled upon that post already, unfortunately it didn’t help. So didn’t the KB articles I found.
        Anyway, meanwhile I managed to install the license but there may be two different reasons why it succeded. First I unregistered and re-registered a second vCenter server and used that one for license installation.
        Second I took a look at the C:\…\licenses\site folder. All of the files did not have an extension except the vCO license definitions. So I made copies of them and removed the file extension.

          Hmmm, weird. Happy you solved it. No problems here, tried to link a vCops 5.6 Enterprise license…without any problem….

    Hi, Viktorious!
    I’d like to create some custom reports in vcops.
    Is the “Reporting Tools in vCenter Operations Manager” will help me with this and where to find more info about this?

    10x!

      Hi! The custom UI is the interface is where you can create Custom Dashboards. It’s available at https://vcops.domain.local/custom-ui/. You need an advanced or enterprise license to use it.
