The Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in acts as middleware between Horizon 6, vCenter Orchestrator, and vCloud Automation Center. To be able to install and use the Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in, your system must meet certain functional prerequisites.

VMware Horizon 6 (with View)

You must have access to a View Connection Server 6.0 or 6.0.1 instance. The Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in works with VMware Horizon 6.

For more information about setting up VMware Horizon 6 (that is, 6.0 or 6.0.1), see the View Installation and View Administration documents, available from the documentation page at https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/view_pubs.html.

vCenter Orchestrator

Verify that you have a running instance of Orchestrator. You can log in to the Orchestrator configuration interface at http://orchestrator_server:8283. The Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in works with vCenter Orchestrator 5.5.1 and 5.5.2.

For information about setting up Orchestrator, see Installing and Configuring VMware vCenter Orchestrator, available from the documentation page at https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/orchestrator_pubs.html.

vCloud Automation Center

You must have access to a vCloud Automation Center server. The Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in works with vCloud Automation Center versions 6.0.1 and 6.1. The embedded vCenter Orchestrator server packaged with vCloud Automation Center versions 6.0.1 and 6.1 is compatible with this plug-in, or you can install the plug-in on an external vCenter Orchestrator server.

For information about setting up vCloud Automation Center, see vCloud Automation Center Installation and Configuration, available from the documentation page at https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vcac-pubs.html.

vCenter Server and vCenter Single Sign-On

Verify that you have access to a vCenter Server 5.5.b instance and that you are using vCenter™ Single Sign-On™ 2.0.

For information about setting up vCenter Server 5.5, see vSphere Installation and Setup, available from the documentation page at https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-pubs.html.
