Configure the server communication preferences between StruxureWare Data Center Operation and VMware vCenter Server. See supported versions here.

The VMware vCenter user must have permission to these operations:

  • setCustomValue
  • logUserEvent
  • setTaskDescription
  • addCustomFieldDef
  • exitMaintenanceModeTask
  • destroyPropertyFilter
  • createFilter
  • waitForUpdatesEx
  • retrieveServiceContent
  • login
  • logout
  • waitForUpdates
  • retrieveProperties
  1. Type the logon information of the vCenter server to connect to: host name / IP address, port number, and user credentials.
  2. For a high-security logon session, select Use SSL and accept the certificate.
    Ask the vCenter Server administrator for details if you are unsure whether to use SSL.

The VMware vCenter integration is event-based meaning the vCenter will report directly to StruxureWare Data Center Operation if events/updates occur that the system must be notified about.
