vSphere 5.5: SSO Web Server: How to find which vCenter(s) are using the server

Jump to solution

I'm upgrading the following components of a vSphere 5.5 system:

V5.5 SSO Server (Windows)
V5.5 SSO Web Server (Windows)
V5.5 vCenter Server & hosts (Windows)

I've successfully completed this exercise recently on the customer's DR environment- OMG what a pain! But we got there. I was told that the only components using SSO in the DR environment were the above.

Now I am upgrading the customer's PROD environment however the SSO server is, from what I can see, connected to 2x different customers' vCenters. So I want to be careful with this environment and check for myself which vCenters are using the SSO Server and SSO Web server, but am finding it difficult to find this info.

How do I find the details of attached vCenters in the SSO servers?

Hi @JDMils_Interact ,

Option 1:

Run 'ssolscli.cmd' from SSO server to list service registrations. Please refer the section for 5.5 --> List of Services Registered with SSO 

Option 2: 

Connect to vCenter web client --> Select the vCenter in the  inventory --> Manage --> Advanced settings --> Search for 'config.vpxd.sso'. This will give you the SSO server URL(Refer attached screenshot)

Hope that helps

It worked on the SSO server. What about the external web server, I could not find the respective commands on the file system. How does the external web server fit in with the vCenter? Is it one web server per vCenter or can one web server handle multiple vCenters? If the latter then I need to get the same info from the external SSO web server.

 

Thanks.

Each vCenter will have it's own web client service. Please check the vpxd.cfg on vCenter to get URLs for services

C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\vpxd.cfg

Hope that helps

Thanks Ashilkrishnan, I was hoping to see from the external web server which vCenter were using it - so when i decom the web server I know which vCenters will be affected.
