If vRealize Operations Manager servers are associated with a vCenter Server instance that you added, vCloud Usage Meter locates and adds them for you. To begin metering, you must provide the correct vRealize Operations Manager credentials.

Prerequisites

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.

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

    Important:

    Providing the correct vRealize Operations Manager user name and password is essential to ensuring proper metering. Make sure that you provide the correct vRealize Operations Manager credentials.

  4. Click Save.

Results

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

If you change the vRealize Operations Manager certificate or password, or prevent vCloud Usage Meter from connecting to it, the vRealize Operations Manager server state changes to Inactive. In this case vCloud Usage Meter stops metering. After you set the correct certificate or password, vRealize Operations Manager might still not be visible on the Products page. In this case, delete the vCenter Server that is associated with vRealize Operations Manager, and then add the vCenter Server again so that the vRealize Operations Manager server is auto-detected.
