VMware vRealize Operations
With the recent release of the VMware vSphere 6.5 Virtual Machine STIG Version 1, Release 1, I needed to create new vRealize Operations alert content to verify compliance of my virtual machines. Combined with the automated alert remediation process I described in a previous post, ensuring compliance with the new STIG requirements is easy. See the link at the bottom of the page to download the alert content XML. Unfortunately, the following STIG items can’t be verified by vRealize Operations either because the checks are user process related or the configuration values aren’t currently collected by vRealize Operations:
Have you ever wished that you could automatically execute a custom workflow in response to an alert generated in vRealize Operations? In previous releases of vRealize Operations, there wasn’t an easy way of accomplishing this. While there were many actions that could be executed using the built-in VMware vSphere solution, there wasn’t an easy built-in method to execute custom actions. With the introduction of the VMware vRealize Operations Management Pack for vRealize Orchestrator, VMware has finally made this possible.
