While deploying the vCenter Host Gateway appliance, you must provide Single Sign-On administrator credentials. vCenter Host Gateway requires those credentials to create a solution user.

Solution User

vCenter Host Gateway creates a solution user when vCenter Host Gateway is registered as a service in the Platform Services Controller. vCenter Host Gateway requires the solution user to register, unregister, and modify the service.

The name of the solution user is in the format vchgUserNamenumeric_value.

Note:

Each time you register the vCenter Host Gateway service in the Platform Services Controller, a new solution user is created.

vCenter Host Gateway Privileges

vCenter Host Gateway allows you to manage third-party hosts and virtual machines. vCenter Host Gateway does not require other privileges.
