Known Issues/Limitations

  • The default JVM configuration used by the vROps collector can cause issues with larger environments and/or multiple adapter instances for SNMP-based management packs. See the following VMware knowledge base article for Increasing the Max UDP Sockets in a VMware vRealize Operations Manager server for assistance.
  • To obtain cluster resources, management pack users configuring for VxRail must also install and configure the Management Pack for vSAN on their vROps system.
  • In order to retrieve alerts that are triggered directly by iDRAC/SNMP, the adapter instance must use SNMP v3.
