  1. Using SSH, log in to the VMware Integrated OpenStack manager.
  2. From the VMware Integrated OpenStack manager, use SSH to log in to the controller01 node.
  3. Switch to root user.
    sudo su -
  4. Execute the cloudadmin.rc file.
    source cloudadmin.rc
  5. Configure the controller01 node to use the administrative password.
