One of the required configuration tasks for the Management Pack is to create a set of credentials in vROps.

Procedure

  1. Log in to vRealize Operations as an admin user.
  2. Click the Administration administration_icon icon. In the left panel, click Credentials.
  3. Click the Add add_icon icon. In the Manage Credential window that appears, enter the following information:

    manage_credential-5

Results

Note: Existing users of the Management Pack for SCOM may see additional "grayed -out" fields in the Manage Credential window when upgrading. In that case, you will want to delete your existing credential and create a new one.
  • Credential name: A name for this set of credentials
  • User Name: Your Microsoft SCOM Database User Name
  • Password: The password associated with your Microsoft SCOM Database User Name
Note: Active directory users must prepend the domain name to their user name as follows: domain/username - or - username@domain.
