After you add vCloud Director to vRealize Business for Cloud, the details of the virtual machine that vCloud Director manages are not displayed.

Problem

Even after you add vCloud Director to vRealize Business for Cloud, the details of the virtual machine that vCloud Director manages are not displayed in vRealize Business for Cloud.

Cause

You have not explicitly added the vCenter Server instances that are managed by vCloud Director to vRealize Business for Cloud.

Procedure

  1. Log in to vRealize Business for Cloud or data collection manager:
    • If you are using a vRealize Automation integrated vRealize Business for Cloud setup, log in at https://vRealize_Automation_host_name/vcac/org/tenant_URL by using credentials of a tenant administrator, click Administration and Business Management.

    • If you are using a vRealize Business for Cloud standalone setup, log in at https://vRealize_Business_for_Cloud_host_name/itfm-cloud as an administrator and click Business Management.

    • If you are using a remote data collector, log in to https://Remote_Data_Collector_IP_address:9443/dc-ui/login.html by using the root user credentials.

  2. Click the Administration tab.
  3. Click Business Management.

    Ignore this step for the vRealize Business for Cloud standalone setup.

  4. Click Manage Private Cloud Connections.
  5. Enter the required details to add the instance.
  6. 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.

    Note:

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

  7. Click Install.

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

    Note:

    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.
