vRealize log insight is a scalable Syslog server that can help in getting faster troubleshooting across different products and environments by giving deep operational insights and dashboards.
Preparing prerequisites of deployment
First, we create some prerequisites like Binaries, DNS, certificate, and user. luckily the binaries already copied inside vRLCM while the easy install wizard installation process
1- Adding vROps Binary to vLCM, using My VMware account that was created
2- Create DNS record
Before going forward vRLCM has the concept of Environment (VMware vRealize suite products) mapped to Datacenters which can contain one or more vCenter.
3- Create CSR and import vRLI certificate
After completing CSR request a certificate file (*.pem) will be created, the file contains both CSR request and private key.
Next, we need to open CA web enrollment interface to request a public certificate using CSR
Now we go back to vRLCM > Locker to import the certificate
- Name: name in certificate store
- Private key: generated while creating CSR
- Certificate Chain: public certificate followed by CA chain ( all intimidate and root CA)
4- create a password to be used for vRLI root and admin user
Create VRLI environment
With all prerequisites in hand, we can start deploying single node vRLI
I have selected small, but deployment failed as minimum supported deployment size is medium
VLCM completes vRLI deployment in 22 mins
Now lets login
I have noticed when login from vIDM redirection to vRLI IP not FQDN, this because the application in vIDM has IP configured not FQDN.
next I check VRLI configuration and found the redirect host is IP not FQDN
to change this I Followed the VMware KB https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/81967
vRLI installed and integrated with vIDM, The next product is vRealize Network Insight
