  1. In the Manage Solution window, enter the following information:
    1. Adapter Settings:
      • Display Name: A name for this particular instance of the Management Pack
      • Description: Optional, but it can be helpful to describe multiple instances of the Management Pack
    2. Basic Settings:
    3. Advanced Settings:
      • Collector(s)/Groups: Default Collector/Group is automatically selected. Click the drop-down menu if you want to run the collection on a different node.
      • PowerShell Port: Default port is 5986 (HTTPS); specify 5985 for HTTP.
      • SSL Configuration: Options are No Verify (default value; SSL enabled/certificate not verified), No SSL (SSL disabled), and Verify (SSL enabled/certificate verified). If you select Verify, complete the following task: Adding an SSL Certificate to the vROps Truststore.
      • PowerShell Authentication Mechanism:If using Windows PowerShell, select your authentication type: Basic, Kerberos, or NTLM.
      • Support Autodiscovery: When you enable autodiscovery (default), the Management Pack creates resources and relationships in vROps, then collects data for the discovered resources after the main collection query runs. If you select False, you must manually discover resources. See: Discovering Resources Manually (Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops).
      Important: The collection interval for the adapter instance resource determines how often the Management Pack collects data. The default collection interval is five minutes. For information about changing the collection interval, see:  Configuring the Properties File (Citrix Virtual Apps & Desktops).
  2. Click Test Connection to test the configured connection information. Click Save Settings and Close to save your adapter instance.
