Version Control Agent credentials

Hello,
I tried adding a service account for VCA communication between the client and the HP-SIM server. I don't seem to be able to use that account for communication. I thought that account only needed to be defined as operator in HP-SIM. Should that account have extra rights in SIM or on the OS level of the SIM server?

Thanks in advance,
Jo

Hello,

My practice is to use service account wich is also for HPSIM service.

If you make service account special for communication VCA - HPSIM, then I thik you must also set authorization on systems and CMS with corect rights for that account.

I am re-installing SIM including VCRM in a new machine. Everything is working except the authentication between VCA and VCRM. I have the same trouble. Where to set or specify the username/pwd specified in VCRM for VCA?
It is not in user category for sure as I tried one of them with full right but didn't work.

The account doesn't need to be in HPSIM.
I create a local account on the server hosting the VCRM that has Admin rights.
That account / password is then used for the VCA to VCRM connectivity.
