After you upgrade to VMware vRealize ™ Automation 7.1, you must verify the connection between vRealize Automation and VMware vRealize ™ Orchestrator ™. Sometimes after upgrade you must restore the connection.


  1. Click Validate Configuration.
  2. If the Authentication section has a green check, go to step 4.
  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 choose 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 select another group.

    5. Click Home.
