The system administrator restores the Website components and reconfigures the load balancer if any host names have changed.

If the server for your Website service or load balancer has failed, you can restore it by reinstalling. You can also rename the server or load balancer at this time. If you choose to rename the server, you must edit the configuration files for any components that do not require restoration so that they use the new host name.


Start the custom IaaS installer and select Website as the component. Do not select the ModelManagerData component.

To avoid losing encrypted data, use the same passphrase that you used for the original installation.


If you changed the hostname when you reinstalled the Web site machine or load balancer, update the hostname in the following files for machines and components that do not need to be re-installed:

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Server\Website\Web.config on machines where the Web site component is installed.

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Server\ManagerService.exe.config on machines that have a Manager Service Component installed.

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Distributed Execution Manager\<DEM Name>\DynamicOps.DEM.exe.config on machines that have DEM Worker and/or Orchestrator installed.

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Agents\<Agent Type>\<Agent Config File> for all machines and agents that have been installed.


For each file, locate the line key="repositoryAddress" and change the value of the value attribute to point to the address for your Web site.

For an environment that does not use a load balancer, the address is the hostname where the Model Manager Data component was installed. For an environment with a Web load balancer, use the Web site load balancer address.

For example:
