Adding additional storage to a node in Aria Operations

Hi, Today I had a problem, my vRops UI not working and showed me a text: Redirect vRops UI

This is caused when vRops db does not have sufficient space. I show you how you can solve this error.

I SSH to my vRops.

df -h

Note: You can’t extend the current /storage/db logical volume in vRops, and must add a new hard to each vRops analytic node.


Ensure the vRealize Operations cluster is Offline, then log into the VMware vSphere client as an administrator.

  1. Right-click the desired vRealize Operations node and click Power > Shut Down Guest OS.
  2. Right-click the powered-off node and click Edit Settings.
  3. Click the Hardware tab and click Add.

Note: Do NOT expand an existing disk.

  1. Click Hard Disk and click Next.
  2. Select Create a new virtual Disk and click Next.
  3. Set the Disk Size to an appropriate value.
  4. Select a disk provisioning format, if applicable.
    • Note: When possible, select the Thick Provision Eager Zeroed option.
  5. Select a location to store the disk and click Next.
  6. Accept the default Virtual Device Node and click Next.
  7. Review the information and click Finish.
  8. Click OK. The new storage is now added to the node.
  9. Right-click the node and click Power On.
  10. Repeats steps 1-13 on all other analytic nodes.
    • Note: All analytic nodes must have the same amount of space in the /storage/db logical volume.
  11. Log into the Admin UI as admin and click the Bring Online button to bring the cluster online.
  12. The node discovers the additional storage and adds it to the /storage/db logical volume automatically during boot.
  13. I SSH to my vRops and type df -h

Finish 🙂
