vRealize Log Insight Not Connected to vCenter Servers After Upgrade

This is just a quick article that I have been meaning to do. I upgraded my Log Insight server. After the upgrade, it wasn’t collecting logs from my vCenter Servers. I had to accept a certificate for each vCenter Server and then it worked again. The setting is in Log Insight, under administration, and vSphere. I forgot to take a screenshot when I saw the error. Below is the location to accept the certificate.

Integration between vRealize products and vCenter Server

There is very useful integration between vRealize Operations, Log Insight, and vCenter Server. The products can be tied to each other to make them more seamless and easier to navigate. A few roles are required to be created to restrict permissions. I have the broad steps and links to the VMware articles below that detail the specific permissions and documentation. Go through the steps and then you will be able to launch in context.

As defined by VMware; launch in context is a feature in vROps that lets you launch an external application via URL in a specific context. The context is defined by the active UI element and object selection. Launch in context lets the Log Insight adapter add menu items to a number of different views within the Custom user interface and the vSphere user interface of Operations Manager.
