My personal adventures in the quest for virtual perfectness.
I'm quite excited. Just found on the VMware website that VCOPS for Horizon View is GA. Together with this release there is also a new version for VCOPS -> 5.7.0.
One of the cool things with this release is the .pak file usage. No longer you'll need an additional Windows instance (or multiple when having multiple PODs) for passing the data to VCOPS. VCOPS is capable of handling the datastream direct from the broker agents and client agents. Installation is a breeze - just install the .pak file on the /admin part on VCOPS, just like doing the update to VCOPS 5.7.0.
During beta I've found one configuration issue you might take into account. When working with firewalls between client <-> VCOPS Analyser <-> broker, you'll need to open ports. Else you are not able to connect from either client or broker agent.
After looking at the "msgserver.properties" file in "/usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/V4V_adapter3/conf" I've found a nice list on port you need to take into account when working with firewall (for example, when your vcops appliance is behind a firewall):
Have fun with this VCOPS and View Adapter release - I will certainly enjoy it!
