To use the scripts, you must create an SSH connection to the vCloud Availability Installer Appliance, and run the commands from the root user's home directory.

You must log in to vCloud Director. You can provide credentials in two ways:

  • Pass your credentials to the vcav login vcd command.

    Note:

    If your session expires, you must repeat the login process and pass your credentials to the vcav login vcd command.

  • Pass the following arguments to the vcd command.

    --vcd-address <vcd_address> --vcd-user <vcd_user> --vcd-password-file <vcd_password_file_txt>
