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

If the server for your Manager 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.

1

Reinstall all Manager Service machines that need to be restored. To avoid losing encrypted data, verify that the passphrase is the same as the one used in the original installation.

2

If the Manager Service host name or load balancer host name has changed, update all agent and DEM configuration files.

Open the DynamicOps.DEM.exe.config file in an editor.

The file is located in the following location, where DEO is the name of the Distributed Execution Manager Orchestrator for the Distributed Execution Manager Worker.

C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Distributed Execution Manager\<DEO Name>\DynamicOps.DEO.exe.config

b

Locate the endpoint element and change the value of the address attribute to new Manager Service or Manager Service Load Balancer hostname.

Example: address="https://MSHostName.domain.name/VMPS
