VMware released the next version of vRealize Operations Manager (vROps) 6.2. There are some new features as follows:

The enhanced integration uses all DRS rules, constraints, and enterprise-class capabilities.

  • Ability to Import Single Sign-On Users
  • Telemetry Enablement on Upgrade
  • Portable Licensing - possibility to install multiple Advanced and Enterprise editions in the same vRealize Operations Manager deployment.
