Here are some good vRO resources
VRO Server Service is running on port 8281. This is the port where vRO Client has to connect.
VRO Server Control is running on port 8283. This is the port where vRO Orchestrator Control Center is running. Direct access is https://[VRO-HOSTNAME]:8283/vco-controlcenter/
Network configuration from the console or over ssh session
Restart vRO Configurator service
service vco-configurator restart
Restart vRO Server service
service vco-server restart
vRO 7.4 configuration synchronization across cluster nodes
In vRO 7.4 there are changes in regards to the way the configuration synchronization is done. Configuration changes done through the control center are going to be "permanent" and going to be replicated to the other nodes as well. Changes done manually like through editing a file by a text editor are going to be overwritten with the latest configuration.
Therefore if you make manual changes like editing the js-io-rights file you need to execute the following CLI command to apply the changes to the latest configuration which going to be replicated.
you should do the following
- stop the control center
- make manual changes
- execute /var/lib/vco/tools/configuration-cli/bin/vro-configure.sh sync-local
- start control center
Time on vRO and Authentication Provider (vCenter/PSC, vRealize Automation/vIDM) must be in sync otherwise you will see error message like "Server returned 'request expired' less than 0 seconds after request was issued". This issue occurs due to a time skew between vCenter Server and the vSphere Replication Appliance.
You should use NTP or sync time with the host. If you want to synchronize vRO time with host use this command from Guest OS
vmware-toolbox-cmd timesync enable
to disable time sync with host use this command
vmware-toolbox-cmd timesync disable
