vRealize-Operations-Manager-Logo_thumb.jpgThose of you used to using vSphere on a regular basis will already be aware of the hardening guide for ESXi and vSphere but what about vROps?

If the vROps appliance needs to be hardened there is already a VMware provided guide and tool to accommodate.

Secure configuration guide – http://pubs.vmware.com/vrealizeoperationsmanager-61/topic/com.vmware.ICbase/PDF/vrealize-operations-manager-61-secure-configuration-guide.pdf

“The documentation for Secure Configuration is intended to serve as a secure baseline for the deployment of vRealize Operations Manager.”

The Documentation covers the Virtual Appliance, Linux deployments and Windows deployments.
