Today I installed the VMware vCenter Operations Manager 5.0 Enterprise edition. During the installation process I found a lot of resources on the topic. I want to share some of them with you.

First I watched a couple of great videos on the VMwareTV youtube channel. First one is the VMware vCenter Operations 5.0 – Introduction Video

 

 

The second on: VMware vCenter Operations Manager 5.0 – Install and Configure
