I am trying to install vOPS ver 5.6 onto our esxi4.1 host but I am getting the following error:
Cant deploy OVF descriptor on cluster xyzxxx since it contains a vApp and the cluster is not in DRS mode..
The esxi 4.1 is Enterprise editon.. Is there something I need to do to get this to deploy the OVF file?
WE really don't want to enable DRS unless we really have to.

Either enable DRS, Install OVF and Disable DRS.

or....

Remove one of the ESX hosts from the cluster so that it resides directly under the parent datacenter.

Yes I had found that article but the question I have is will it affect any of the vms if I remove the host from the cluster and do the install and then put it back into the cluster?

No, will not effect running VMs.

Install OVF on single Host, and the add back to cluster.

or enable DRS! (and select Manual Mode!)

and then nothing will happen!

One more question if I could please and then I will give the points,,
I have the vops setup with 2 ip pools, one is 10.10.20.xxx and the other one is 172.25.34.xxx
How does the vops know to scan both ranges whenit only let me put in the 10.10.20.xxx during the install?
How do you get it to scan 2 different ranges?

Can I just select the different ranges that show up in the first pool I created under the properties of the pool and then association and it will know to monitor both?
