You use the vCloud Connector node Admin Web console for each of your nodes to perform 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.

For vCloud Connector nodes deployed as multitenant nodes in a public cloud or in a private vCloud Director cloud, the service provider or cloud administrator configures the node.

Note

Do not use Firefox to log in to the vCloud Connector server and node Admin Web consoles. Some tabs, such as the Server tab in the server Admin Web console and the Node tab in the node Admin Web console, display blank pages on Firefox.

The vCloud Connector node is powered on and you have its IP address. You have the information you collected in Collect Necessary Information.

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

The Network tab allows you to 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.

The Node tab allows you to change the vCloud Connector node administrator password, adjust log levels, and manage SSL certificates. It also lets you select a data transfer protocol and change the maximum number of concurrent tasks. You also use this tab to register the vCloud Connector node with the cloud it manages.
