vCloud Usage Meter locates and automatically adds vRealize Operations Manager (previously, known as vCenter Operations Manager) servers for you if they are associated with the vCenter Server instances that you added. To begin metering, you must provide the correct vRealize Operations Manager credentials.

Prerequisites

Verify that you have at least read-only administrator privileges.

Procedure

  1. Click Manage in the top right menu bar of the Web application.
  2. Click the Products tab.
  3. Click Edit in the vRealize Operations Manager area and enter the Administrator User Name and Password.

    Accept the certificate, to add vRealize Operations Manager successfully. If you miss accepting the certificate, delete the vCenter Server associated with that vRealize Operations Manager and then reactivate it.

  4. Click Save.

Results

The credentials for the vRealize Operations Manager server are added to vCloud Usage Meter.

When you change the vRealize Operations Manager certificate or password, or perform any step that prevents vCloud Usage Meter from being able to connect with it, the vRealize Operations Manager Server gets set to Inactive and vCloud Usage Meter stops metering it. After you set it to the correct certificate or password, vRealize Operations Manager might still not be visible on the Manage > Products page. In this case, delete the vCenter Server that is associated with vRealize Operations Manager from vCloud Usage Meter, and then add the vCenter Server again so that the vRealize Operations Manager Server get auto-detected again.
