Some objects may appear as Restricted when viewed from vRealize Operations Manager 5.0 (2016071)


  • When viewing objects within vRealize Operations Manager (formerly known as VMware vCenter Operations Manager) 5.0, some of the objects may appear as Restricted
  • These objects are usually visible to the user because they have sufficient rights within vCenter Server
  • This issue occurs when viewing the Standard/Advanced UI from the vRealize Operations 5.0 vApp for both Standard/Advanced and Enterprise licensing levels


This issue is resolved in vRealize Operations Manager (formerly known as VMware vCenter Operations Manager) 5.0.1 and later.

To upgrade your appliance, download the .pak updater files from the Download Center in My VMware and follow the instructions in Build-to-Build Upgrade Procedure in the Release Notes.
