The built-in vCO instance will already have all necessary plugins for vCAC / AD etc. When using the appliance you likely only have the vCenter Plugin.
You can find all the official VMWare plugins HERE.
Then from the Orchastrator Admin interface, install the plugins by browsing to Plugins
Click the magnifying glass and browse your local computer for the downloaded plugin and click Open
And click Upload and Install
Accept the License Agreement of the plugin by clicking I accept the terms of the License Agreement
Confirm that the install was successful
Repeat the process for any other plugins you’d like to install (AD / AWS etc.) and click Apply all changes
Some plugins require a restart of the services, but the plugin description will tell you if they do
Now head back over to your vCAC install.
Go to Administration > Advanced Services > Server Configuration and click Use an external Orchestrator server
Fill in the details of your external vCO instance and click Test Connection
If Successful, click Update. You will now be warned that all your existing endpoints will be deleted. Here I don’t have any yet, so this isn’t a problem for me.
That’s it. If you did have endpoints and you hit OK above, now is the time to re-create them 🙂
When adding new Endpoints you should now see additional plugins installed – here as example Active Directory
Make also sure you can see the newly installed plugins in vCO directly including the default workflows installed with them.
