Configuring vRealize Orchestrator

You can configure the optional vRealize Orchestrator application with UCP Advisor to automate IT workflow processes on Hitachi storage and compute devices.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that vRealize Orchestrator is deployed. For more information, see the VMware vSphere ESXi and vCenter Server 6.0/6.5 Documentation for information on deploying vRO, found on the VMware website: http://www.vmware.com/.
  • The Hitachi Storage Connector software must be installed as an addition to vRealize Orchestrator to add Hitachi workflows to the Orchestrator library. It sends storage operations triggered by workflows to the web service component to be carried out. This component is represented by a file named o11nplugin-HSC.dar.
  • The Hitachi Compute Connector software must be installed as an addition to vRealize Orchestrator to add Hitachi workflows to the Orchestrator library. It sends compute operations triggered by workflows to the web service component to be carried out. This component is represented by a file named o11nplugin-HiVCOServer.dar.
