You can create a vRealize Operations Manager end-point in vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager Content Management end-point.

  1. When you are selecting a Root as a SSH user from the content endpoint, create a user on vRealize Operations Manager appliance. The user must have SSH access and belong to user groups root and wheel with a valid home directory.
  2. Log into the vRealize Operations Manager appliance as root user and create user on the vRealize Operations Manager appliance using below command. For example, useradd sshuser.

  3. Configure user groups for the created user - usermod -G root,wheel sshuser
  4. Configure the correct home directory for the user:
    mkdir /home/sshuser"
    "chown sshuser /home/sshuser"
  5. Set the password - passwd sshuser.
  6. Enabled password less sudo capabilities for the user
    Run command visudo 
    sshuser ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/python/bin/python /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/tools/opscli/ *
    sshuser ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/rm -rf /tmp/*
    sshuser ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/mv /tmp/*
Note: OPS-CLI is used for most of the vRealize Operations Manager contents to export or import as part of content capture or release in vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager. Therefore, SSH credentials are required to execute those commands.
