Enable vRealize Orchestrator Control Center

There's a new interface in town for vRealize Orchestrator  which allows you to better configure plugins and cluster’s configuration, monitor logs and troubleshoot workflow runs and metrics.
Control Center, in beta since vRO 6.x, it’ now production ready and the only way to manage your vRO 7.x environment.

If you are using the stand alone version of vRO, the Control Center can be reached by https://”vRO”:8283/vco-controlcenter

But if you are using vRealize Automation 7.x, which has embedded vRO, you will realize Control Center is disable by default.

I’m posting about it because I did not find any information about how to enable it, you might have better luck, so here’s how:

-       Login on vRA appliance through SSH or vCenter Remote Console;
-       Start the service running: /etc/init.d/vco-configurator start

That’s it. Now you can access Control Center with the provided address above.

But if you are really paying attention, you have realized already that when the appliance get rebooted the service you come up stopped again.

So we need to configure the service to start up automatically once reboot

-       Login on vRA appliance through SSH or vCenter Remote Console;
-       Run: chkconfig vco-configurator on

That’s it folks !!
