A system administrator can modify proxy agent configuration settings, such as the deletion policy for virtualization platforms. You can use the proxy agent utility to modify the initial configurations that are encrypted in the agent configuration file.

Prerequisites

Log in as a system administrator to the machine where you installed the agent.

Procedure

  1. Change to the agents installation directory, where agent_name is the directory containing the proxy agent, which is also the name under which the agent is installed.

    cd Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC Agents\agent_name

  2. View the current configuration settings.

    Enter DynamicOps.Vrm.VRMencrypt.exe VRMAgent.exe.config get

    The following is an example of the output of the command:

    Username: XSadmin
  3. Enter the set command to change a property, where property is one of the options shown in the table.

    Dynamic0ps.Vrm.VRMencrypt.exe VRMAgent.exe.config set property value

    If you omit value, the utility prompts you for a new value.

    Property

    Description

    username

    The username representing administrator-level credentials for the XenServer or Hyper-V server the agent communicates with.

    password

    The password for the administrator-level username.

  4. Click Start > Administrative Tools > Services and restart the vRealize Automation Agent – agentname service.

Change Administrator-Level Credentials

Enter the following command to change the administrator-level credentials for the virtualization platform specified during the agent installation.

Dynamic0ps.Vrm.VRMencrypt.exe VRMAgent.exe.config set username jsmith

Dynamic0ps.Vrm.VRMencrypt.exe VRMAgent.exe.config set password

What to do next

For high-availability, you can install and configure a redundant agent for your endpoint. Install each redundant agent on a separate server, but name and configure the agents identically.
