After you install the DaaS Agent, you can edit the Monitor.ini file to manually configure the agent.



  1. Navigate to the directory that contains the MonitorAgent.ini file.
    • 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Vmware DaaS Agent\service

    • 32-bit: C:\Program Files\VMware\Vmware DaaS Agent\service

  2. Open the MonitorAgent.ini file for editing.
  3. In the [element] section, uncomment the standby_address and add the tenant appliance IP addresses, separated by a comma.

    Obtain the tenant appliance IP addresses from your VMware representative.

    For example: standby_address=,

  4. Set auto discover to 0.
  5. Save and close the file.
  6. On the Images page, select Download Bootstrap from the drop-down menu.
  7. Enter and re-enter a password of 8-20 ASCII characters containing at least one each of the following: lowercase letter, uppercase letter, number, and symbol (!@#$%^&*). Do not use non-ASCII characters in the password. Make a note of this password for future use.
  8. Log in to the image candidate VM.
  9. Open a command prompt as administrator and navigate to the DaaS Agent installation directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware DaaS Agent\service).
  10. Run the Keytool.exe file with the bootstrap file as an argument:
    Keytool –f <absolute path to the bootstrap file>
  11. When prompted, enter the encryption password you set in step 3 above.

    Keytool performs the bootstrap and moves the certificate to the cert folder.
