Once you have created a restricted vCenter Server user, you can now register vCenter Server with the Cyber Recovery connector using the restricted user account.

Prerequisites

You only have to register one Cyber Recovery connector with vCenter Server. Other Cyber Recovery connectors at the site automatically update to be aware of the newly registered vCenter Server.

Procedure

  1. SSH to the Cyber Recovery connector virtual appliance.
    To SSH, you can obtain the Cyber Recovery connector IP address for an on-premises protected site in the VMware Live Cyber Recovery UI under Sites > Protected Sites.

    To obtain the connector admin password, go to Protected Sites, select the site and under the Connectors tile select the more options menu and click Show password.

  2. Run the following command:
    connector-name>> drc register-vcenter --vcenter 10.80.11.235 --username drc_user@vsphere.local --password drcSh1ep$2!

Example

connector-name>> drc register-vcenter --vcenter 10.80.11.235 --username drc_user@vsphere.local --password drcSh1ep$2!

What to do next

You can now start creating protection groups on your protected on-premises vSphere site.
