If you reinstall the View adapter to which the broker agent is connected, or you want to connect the broker agent to a different View adapter instance, you must reconfigure the broker agent to pair with the View adapter instance.

Verify that you have the server key for the View adapter instance to pair with the broker agent. You specified the server key when you created a credential for the adapter instance.

Verify that you have the IP address of the View Connection Server host where you installed the View adapter.

1

Log in to the View Connection Server host where you installed the broker agent with a domain user account.

Local accounts do not have the necessary privileges to configure the broker agent settings.

2

From the Start menu, select VMware > vRealize Operations View Broker Agent Settings.

3

In the vRealize Operations View Adapter section of the vRealize Operations View Broker Agent Settings dialog box, type the IP address and port number for the node or remote collector where the View adapter instance is running.

By default, the broker agent uses port 3091 to communicate with the View adapter. You can modify the default port number, depending on your network configuration.

4

Click Test to test the connection to the IP address and port.

5

Click Pair Adapter to pair the broker agent with the View adapter instance.

6

When the wizard prompts you for the adapter server key, type and confirm the server key for the View adapter and click OK to start the pairing process.

The status of the pairing process appears in the Pair View Adapter window.

7

After the pairing process succeeds, click Close to close the Pair View Adapter window.

8

Click Apply to save your settings.

The status of your configuration appears in the Applying Configuration Settings window.

9

After the configuration settings are successfully applied, click Close to close the Applying Configuration Settings window.
