You can register the Orchestrator server with a vCenter Single Sign-On server by using the simple mode registration form in the Orchestrator configuration interface. The simple mode registration is easier and initially you should only provide the URL of your vCenter Single Sign-On server and the credentials of the vCenter Single Sign-On admin.

Prerequisites

Install and configure VMware vCenter Single Sign-On and verify that your vCenter Single Sign-On server is running.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Orchestrator configuration interface as vmware.
  2. Click Authentication.
  3. Select SSO Authentication from the Authentication mode drop-down menu.
  4. In the Host text box, type the URL for the machine on which you have installed the vCenter Single Sign-On server.

    https://your_vcenter_single_sign_on_server:7444

  5. In the Admin user name and Admin password text boxes, type the credentials of the vCenter Single Sign-On admin.

    The account is temporarily used only for registering or removing Orchestrator as a solution.

  6. Click Register Orchestrator.
  7. Complete the vCenter Single Sign-On configuration.
    1. (Optional) : Filter the list of available groups by typing search criteria in the Groups filter text box and pressing Enter.
    2. Select a vCO Admin domain and group from the drop-down menu.
