After you upgrade to vRealize Automation 7.0, you must verify that the connection between vRealize Automation and vRealize Orchestrator is working. Sometimes the upgrade process makes it necessary to restore the connection.


  1. Click Validate Configuration.
  2. If the Authentication section has a green check, go to step 5.
  3. If the Authentication section does not have a green check, perform the following steps to restore the connection to vRealize Orchestrator .
    1. Click Home.
    2. Click Configure Authentication Provider.
    3. In the Admin group text box, select Change, and specify a new Admin group that can be properly resolved.

      The vcoadmins group is available only at the default vsphere.local tenant. If you are using another tenant for the vRealize Orchestrator, then you must choose another group.

    4. Click Save Changes, and if prompted, restart the Orchestrator server.
    5. Click Home.
