If you have updated any configuration outside of vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, then the products managed from vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager will be out of sync. To update the configuration, you have to trigger inventory to sync.

If the product upgraded outside or if there is any failure in vRealize Automation or vRealize Operations Manager, inventory sync updates the correct master node in vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager.

If any components of products are added or deleted outside of vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, inventory sync is used to update them. If a product password changed outside can be updated in vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager by syncing it with the inventory, but the request eventually fails. However, you can provide the right password when you retry.

To change the root password of vRealize Operations Manager, then you have to create a root password in the Locker and use the same to replace the vRealize Operations Manager root password through vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager. You need not change the root password in the vRealize Operations Manager.

Also, if you modify the password directly in the application, for example, vRealize Operations Manager then you should run the inventory sync of the product in vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager so that the modified passwords are synchronized with vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager again. This action prompts you to provide the modified passwords during an inventory sync.

With 8.1, you can sync your inventories for each product and for all the products within an environment.

  • Instead of navigating into each product to synchronize your inventories, you can click the horizontal ellipses on the product card and click Trigger Inventory Sync.
  • If there are multiple environments and there are multiple products within an environment, you can click the Trigger Inventory Sync on the Environment page. This triggers the inventory sync on all the products in all environments.
  • You can click the View Details of the product and then click the Trigger Inventory Sync. This would trigger the inventory sync for the required product alone.
