I have installed vCops , but I am confused about what network and vlan that this needs to be on , should it be on the same network and vlan as vcenter ? should the network pool be set to the same network as the vCops and vcenter are on ?
this is the UI when booted

Yes, ALL vCenter.

also ensure you create a vApp settings for the vApp.

so the vC ops would be on the same network and VLAN as the Vcneter , the network pool should also be pointing to this same network

the network that the vcneter in on is called "dvpg_managment network -610"

that network has a /27 so the valid IP range is x.x.x.1 to x.x.x.30

I am going to give the Vcops the IPs of x.x.x.24 and x.x.x.25

I will configure the IP pool also to look at only this network

Hancock !

thanks I am all set , it seems as if when I installled the vcOps  it atteched the UI and Analirtics to the wrong VLAN ,

as dVS was set up and as soon as I changed each adapter to ti correct 610 vlan all is good !
