You configure multiple Orchestrator servers to work with a vCenter Server instance that is connected to your vSphere Client. A default Orchestrator server is automatically configured to work with the vCenter Server instance, unless you configure one manually. Otherwise, a default Orchestrator server is automatically selected.


Verify that you have configured at least one Orchestrator server to work with the same Single Sign-On instance to which vCenter Server is pointing. You must also ensure that Orchestrator is registered as a vCenter Server extension. You register Orchestrator as a vCenter Server extension when you specify a user account that has the necessary privileges to manage vCenter Serverextensions. For more information, see Installing and Configuring VMware vRealize Orchestrator.
