This article provide steps to take a snapshot of VMware vRealize Operations Manager 6.x from vSphere.


  • If a snapshot is taken incorrectly, the rollback may fail, or result in a damaged vRealize Operations Manager 6.x cluster.

  4. Right-Click on the Master node and select Snapshot  > Take Snapshot.
  5. Enter a Name and Description for the snapshot.
  6. Uncheck Snapshot the virtual machine's memory check box.
  7. Uncheck Quiesce guest file system (Needs VMware Tools installed) check box.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Repeat steps 3-8 on all nodes in the vRealize Operations Manager 6.x cluster.
  10. After the snapshot completes, navigate back to the vRealize Operations Manager admin UI (https://IP_or_FQDN/admin) as the local admin user.
