You use the vCloud Connector server Admin Web console 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.

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 server is powered on and you have its IP address. You also have the information you gathered in Collect Necessary Information.

1

Go to the vCloud Connector server Admin Web console at https://vCC Server IP address:5480.

2

If you receive a certificate warning, accept the certificate.

3

Log in to the server Admin Web console as admin.

The default password is vmware.

Check the Web console title to confirm that you are configuring the vCloud Connector server.

4

Use the information you collected in Collect Necessary Information to complete general configuration.

5

When you have finished with general configuration, keep the server Admin Web console page open at the Server tab.

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

The Network tab lets you 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.

In the Server tab, the General and SSL tabs allow you to change the server administrator password, adjust log levels, and manage SSL certificates. The vSphere Client tab is used later in the registration process to register the user interface.

The Nodes tab in the server Admin Web console lets you register vCloud Connector nodes with your vCloud Connector server, download node log files, and register Stretch Deploy settings. During the initial installation process, you use this tab after you install nodes.
