After deployment of vCenter Operations Manager there are two users in the system that have access to the entire environment. These are the built-in admin-user of vCops and any user that is assigned to the Administrator role in vCenter. In the image below you can see that there are two privileges assigned in the Administrator role that allow anyone assigned a permission with this role to access vCenter Operations Manager as an administrative user.
It is possible to reset your vCenter Operations Manager configuration to the default settings. This applies to the default policy but also to any other policies that you may have created in your environment. Open the Configuration panel, click the Default Policy or any other policy you would like reset. Next in the Clone from field select Original Defaults and click Ok to save the settings. All configuration settings for that policy are now reset to the default vCops settings.

In the vSphere Client and vSphere Web Client you can find how many days your host has been running. But what happened before that period? How often did your host boot in the past? This information is stored in the file /var/log/vmksummary.log on your ESXi-host. The file is updated hourly with information how long your host has been up and how many virtual machines are running at that moment.
