Steps for Deploying vRealize Orchestrator
|1||Deploy vrealize orchestrator appliance|
|Configure Authentication Provider|
|3||Connect to VRO Server|
|VRO Web Client|
Deploy VRO Appliance
Connect to vCenter Server and deploy ova appliance
Configure vRealize Orchestrator
Connect to vRealize Orchestrator Control Center https://VROIP:8283/vco-controlcenter and provide root user account credentials when prompted
In Control Center , check whether VRO Services are running are not.
Configure Authentication Provider
Go to homepage and Select “Configure Authentication Provider”
VRO7 supports 4 authentication modes
- vRealize Automation
Choose the one which is applicable to your environment. As my main goal for deploying orchestrator is to integrate with VRA I selected vRealse Automation.
Note: LDAP is deprecated in VRO7 and may not be available in future releases, so I recommend you to not select LDAP
Provide FQDN of VRA appliance and click Connect
Username : Administrator ( Don’t specify it as Administrator@vsphere.local)
For VRO we can provide VRA/vCenter license. If you want to use VRA7 license select the check box for “Configure Licenses”
Default tenant is vsphere.local
Provide Admin group for VRO. These users will have admin privileges
Once configuration is saved we have to restart orchestrator services.
Go to Home and click Start up Options and restart VRO Services
Select Licensing in Home.
If you want to change license select license provider as “Manual” and provide the licese key
Click Certificates and import Certificates you trust
Validate the configuration. If you see green ticks , it means you did a good job J
Connect to VRO Server.
To connect orchestrator we need java on client machine.
One way of connecting is
Download client locally , Install client on machine and connect to VRO server
The other way is : Start orchestrator client using Java web start
(This is recommended if you have to connect to server through Citrix / Terminal Server)
Congratulations, you have successfully deployed VRO 7.No tags for this post.
