If you have installed Orchestrator as a part of the vCenter Server installation, the Orchestrator Configuration service does not start by default. You must start it manually before you try to access the Orchestrator configuration interface.

If you installed Orchestrator standalone, the Orchestrator Configuration service is already started.


On the machine on which Orchestrator is installed, select Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Services.


In the Services window, right-click VMware vCenter Orchestrator Configuration and select Start.


(Optional) Set up the service to start automatically on the next reboot.


Right-click VMware vCenter Orchestrator Configuration and select Properties.


In the VMware vCenter Orchestrator Configuration Properties (Local Computer) window, from the Startup type drop-down menu select Automatic.

The Orchestrator Configuration service is now running and Orchestrator configuration interface is available for use.

You can log in to the Orchestrator configuration interface and start the process of configuring Orchestrator.
