You use the vCloud Connector Node Admin Web console for each of your Nodes to do basic configuration tasks, such as defining your time zone, specifying proxy servers, or setting log levels. What you need to do depends on your particular installation.

The vCloud Connector Node Admin Web console interface is divided into four tabs: System, Network, Update, and Node.

The vCloud Connector Node instance is running and you have the IP address for it that you wrote down when you installed it. You have the information you collected in Collect Necessary Information.

1

Go to the vCloud Connector Node Admin Web console at https://<Node_IPaddress>:5480.

2

If you receive a certificate warning, accept the certificate.

3

Log on to the Node Admin Web console as admin.

The default password is vmware.

Check the Web console title to make sure you are configuring the vCloud Connector Node.

4

Use the information you collected to complete general configuration as needed.

When you finish the general configuration tasks, you can exit the vCloud Connector Node Admin Web console.

The System tab provides general information on the virtual appliance, allows you to set time zones, and lets you shut down and reboot the appliance.

On the Network tab, you can view network related information about the appliance, switch between DHCP and static IP addresses, and set up proxy information.

The Update tab allows you to check the update status of your virtual appliance and to set your update policy.

On the Node tab you can change the vCloud Connector Node administrator password, adjust log levels, and manage SSL certificates. You also use this tab to register the vCloud Connector Node with the cloud on which it is installed.
