Veritas Operations Manager

Provides the ability to configure and manage virtual business services. You can create a virtual business service and configure it only by using Management Server.

Managed Host (VRTSsfmh)

Installed on all the nodes of a cluster that can form a part of virtual business service.

The Virtual Business Services (VRTSvbs) package

The package is installed on the nodes participating in the virtual business service to enable inter-cluster fault management and command line operations for Virtual Business Services. From Cluster Server 6.0 onwards it is installed by default.


You can use multiple Management Servers to manage the nodes in a cluster. However, you must create and operate the virtual business services from only one Management Server.
