You can add, edit and delete EMC Storage Resource Management (SRM) servers to vRealize Business for Cloud.


Verify that you have the EMC SRM server user credentials.


  1. Log in to vRealize Automation or data collection manager:
    • To add a datasource to the vRealize Business for Cloud server directly, log in to the vRealize Automation interface at https://vRealize_Automation_host_name/vcac/org/tenant_URL by using credentials of a tenant administrator, click Administration and Business Management.

    • To add a datasource to a data collector, log in to https://Remote_Data_Collector_IP_address:9443/dc-ui/login.html by using the root user credentials.

  2. Click Manage Private Cloud Connections.
  3. Select Storage Server, and click the add icon.
  4. Enter the required details to add the instance.
  5. Click Save and click OK in the Success dialog.

    If the instance is not using SSL certificate from certificate authority, a dialog with untrusted SSL certificate is displayed.


    vRealize Business for Cloud does not verify the revocation status of the SSL certificate. You must verify the status manually before accepting the certificate.

  6. Click Install.

    If the credentials are valid, the instance is added to the vRealize Business for Cloud.


    If the SSL certificate changes after addition of instance into vRealize Business for Cloud, data collection might fail. This is because, the instance presents a new untrusted certificate. You can edit the instance and then accept the new certificate.

    You can perform the same procedure to add multiple instances.

  7. To edit the details, select the instance entry from the table, click the edit option, modify the details, click Save and click OK in the Success dialog.
  8. To delete an instance, select the instance from the table, click the delete icon in the instance row and click Delete in the confirmation dialog box.
