When using remote vCenter endpoints with vRealize Automation, it is important to configure a vRealize Business for Cloud Remote Data Collector (or two) local to the remote endpoint.
Just noticed that vROps v6.6 now comes with an adapter for vRealize Business for Cloud, so obviously felt the need to configure it and see what it provides.
Upgrading multiple vRealize components in our lab to latest available, this time it was vRealize Business for Cloud to be upgraded.
We wanted to upgrade our EHC lab instance of vRealize Business Standard (v6.2.3) to vRealize Business for Cloud (v7.1.0). Using vRB v7.x has been a common request for some of our Financial customers who required vRB to support the Swiss Franc.
So after a quick glance at the vRB 7.x Install Guide, we realised that this is a migration, not an upgrade.
The Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution uses VMware vRealize Business (vRB) Standard to provide chargeback information on the resources consumed in the hybrid cloud.
