Using your default system administrator privileges, you create two local user accounts in the default tenant. Assign one of these accounts to the tenant administrator role so you can start configuring the default tenant. You can use the second account later as a shared login for your architects to test blueprint and catalog access.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the vRealize Automation console, https://vra01svr01.rainpole.local/vcac.
  2. Enter the default system administrator username, administrator, and password, VMware1!.
  3. Select Administration > Tenants.
  4. Click vsphere.local.
  5. Select the Local Users tab.
  6. Click the New icon (Add).
  7. Create a local user account to assign to the tenant administrator role.
