I have a current management vCenter that is running my View Servers, View Composer and VDI VC. the VC is in domain A and I have connected View Manager to this VC with no issues. I have now deployed View Composer into domain B and am trying to get this working with my View setup. I go to reconfigure my vCenter Server and have set to use a Standalone View Composer Server. I have added the FQDN and a service account that is a local admin on the View Composer Server. Checking the certificate gives me the self signed cert and I accept this. Next I add my domain that I want to create the VDI machines under and give it credentials for this domain which saves succesfully. When I click OK to try to save the new View Composer settings I get a java.lang.NullPointerException error and am unable to save my settings. My 2 domains do not have a trust between them, however my vCenter user account has full admin rights on my vCenter so I believe this should work.
How do I get my View environment to take the View Composer settings?
This proved useful, I just had the exact same scenario but in my case the ports were already open. It couldn't resolve the DNS name between the domains though so I added a hosts file entry to the Composer server to the vCenter and that resolved the problem.
