    Hi,
    Thanks for your wondeful blog.
    I have a question. I started to install VRO 6.2 and all is fine except that i can only connect to the VRO administration GUI and not the second (picture 18 in you explanation) one to add the license key and so on.

    What i have done wrong ?

    Thx

    Eric

            I deployed it again and it works.
            The difference between the first deployment and this one is that i choose "extra small" than "small" during the ova deployment.

            Now everything is fine.
            Thanks for your help 🙂

              I don't think so that size of appliance was a reason. I hope that VMware appliances (not only vROps, but e.g. VCSA as well) will be designed better...
