- Login to and node of vROps 6.0 cluster deployment. (If you have a standalone deployment then that’s the node you want to login to. Remote collectors do not have these policies hence do not login to them, instead chose a Master, Master Replica or a data node. Please use credentials with appropriate permissions.
- Click on the Administration Icon and click on Policies.
- Click on the Policy Library and then select the policy which you wish to export and click on the Tool icon highlighted in the screenshot and click on EXPORT. This can be saved as an XML file and later imported back when you need it.
You can just import the xml using the same options and it will give you the policy back into your vROps instance. Please ensure that you enable the policy by attaching it to a group or the entire universe. Once you do that, the policy would be reflected under the Active Policies. Here you can rank the policies just like the old vROps days. Rank 1 will have a higher priority while the default policy will have a rank of D. Look at the screenshot here which shows a policy I have just made active:
With this I will close this article and hopefully this gives you an insight on how you can play around with policies on vROps 6.0. See you soon with my next post!
