vCO server not appearing under managed vcenter instances

Hi all,

I want to have a look at vCO. I have done a quick and dirty install on some development infrastructure.
I am using vcenter5.1. Installed vCO on same box.
In my vCO config all seems fine and with that I mean all the lights are green.

When I log into the web client I cannot see or seem unable to add the vCO server.

Where should I start looking? I also can't log in into vCO client and the used account worked when testing LDAP login in vCO config

I will keep looking but if you have any pointers please let me know.

Have you logged into the web client with the SSO admin? Try checking the mob to see if orchestrator is registered with the vcenter.

Unfortunately I don't have SSO password. The vSphere 5.1 setup was quick and dirty too 🙂

I did get into vCO client in the end so I assume that will give me same functionality?

That would suit me fine for now

For me when i installed the vcenter and orchestrator and logged into the web client with SSO admin password, orchestrator never showed up but when i went to <vcenter_IP>/mob/content/ExtensionManager my orchestrator was registered.
So when i next logged in with my AD administrator i was able to get back the whole inventory including orchestrator.
