You can schedule a workflow to run at a specified time. You can also set the recurrence for a scheduled workflow.


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.
