How to create a new vCenter user

Technote (FAQ)


We want to create a user to manage passwords in the vCenter used by the cloud server pool. What's the procedure?


You can create a user to manage the vCenter and to control the password.
First, you need to create the new vCenter user with full administrator authority and the VMware roles as defined at (e.g. for TSAM

Once you verify that the user can perform all required VMware administrator tasks in the vCenter, update the vSphere Provisioning Computer object's HTTPs SAP credential in TSAM with the new userid and password. This is done from Maximo UI, selecting:
- Go To -> IT Infrastructure -> Provisioning Inventory -> Provisioning Computers
- search for vSphere
- click on the Credentials tab
