Here is what I am trying to do in a nutshell, I want to use vmwware orchestrator to stop a group of vms and then force a Data Protection backup job and then turn the vms back on. Something that is oddly missing in the Data Protection backup job definition.
Here is what I did:
Installed Data Protection Appliance (vSphere Data Protection 6.1 (powered by EMC)) into the vsphere environment (vsphere 6.0, vcenter 6.0)
Confirmed that VDP appliance is working correctly.
Then I downloaded the VDP Plugin for orchestrator (edp4vcac-22.214.171.124.vmoapp)
Installed the plugin into an embedded vro within a vra appliance (126.96.36.19910137 Build 3310137)
Then ran the "Add Data Protection System" workflow
With the following options
And I get the following error
I have tried the root, admin, email@example.com and vsphere.local\administrator and continue to get the same error.
Any idea what I am doing wrong?
Though VDP is a stripped down version of Avamar, The plug-in meant from Avamar need not necessariliy work for VDP. Did you find any official support statement from VMware claiming VDP plugin for Orchestrator ? If not, then you are experimenting...
