  • Verify that the fully qualified domain name of the App Volumes Server instance can be resolved from the machine where the vRealize Orchestrator server is running.
  • Verify that you have administrator credentials for the vRealize Orchestrator server. The account must be a member of the vRealize Orchestrator Admin group configured to authenticate through vCenter Single Sign-On.
  • Verify that you have the credentials of a user that has the App Volumes Administrators role. The users and groups that have the App Volumes Administrators role were specified in App Volumes Administrator when the App Volumes Server instance was installed and set up.
