VMware VirtualCenter Settings

When trying to configure the settings the "Run Now" option becomes disabled when the username has a "domain name" with a hyphen in it!

Is there a work-a-round so that I can register my VCC? This is needed - help

Regards

Re: VMware VirtualCenter Settings

Is this from SIM+VMM that you are talking about?

Re: VMware VirtualCenter Settings

I hope the attached pictures better explain the problem, but I believe the answer to your qustion is yes!

Is this functionality only available when the VMM is installed?

Thanks in advance.

Re: VMware VirtualCenter Settings

yes,this is the VMM fucntionality and it should be installed to make things work. Over and above this, the basic VC settings ie defining a server farm etc need to be setup from VC itself.

Re: VMware VirtualCenter Settings

I appreicate what you are saying, I have set up the vmware side of things and this is all working fine.

The issue is with SIM NOT allowing me to enter a user name that has a domain name with a '-' in the name.

As you can see from the pictures previously attached, if the domain\username has no additional characters in in the 'Run Now' button is enabled. However, as soon as I enter our domain name (which has a '-' in it), the 'Run Now' button now becomes disabled!

This is bug in SIM and not the vmware settings! Is there a work around, or where can I report this problem?

Thanks

Re: VMware VirtualCenter Settings

Hi,

Following quote from release notes might help.
Quote
3. For user name and passwords, the following guidelines apply:
â Database user names and passwords containing spaces are not supported.
â Oracle user names containing slash marks (/, \) are not supported.
â Microsoft SQL passwords containing quotes (") or the pipe character (|) are not supported.
â VirtualCenter user names and passwords must contain only alphanumeric characters.

As per this, the - (hyphen ) is not allowed. I would suggest logging a call with HP support to take it forward

Re: VMware VirtualCenter Settings

What is the best way to log a call with support - i.e. How? When I go to the Support Case Manager and try and raise a call for software, I am required to choose a contact! I do not have a contract for SIM!!!
