Short but sweet.
I deployed vRealize Operations Management 6.0 as a linux appliance and configured it on a 5.5 vCenter that has hosts with VSOM (vSphere with Operations Management) 5.5 licenses. I thought that vRops would pick up the licenses from the vcenter, but no.
I then wondered if there was a separate license on the MyVMware portal, but no again. Finally, what i found was the solution is that you paste the same VSOM host licenses in the Licensing section of the vRops web interface - that's it.
I just couldnt find something on it easily on google - and that's what this blog is about.
