You can define a custom service to use a plug-in that is not supported as standard by App HA.

You cannot add an already existing service.

Verify that the plug-in for which you are creating a service is active in vCenter Hyperic . The service must support the restart action on the vCenter Hyperic server.


Log in to the App HA virtual machine using the root credentials that were set during installation.


Run /opt/vadm-engine/bin/ add.


At the prompt, specify the name of the service to add.

The service name length must be between 2 and128 ASCII characters.

After the service is added, the App HA service automatically restarts. The service restart takes 1-2 minutes.
