repointing VMWare vCenter Server, v5.5
Posted on 2013-11-15
We have a vCenter Server (v5.5) running fine with a basic installation, but the vCenter Server is a VM on one of the hosts it controls. I created a new vCenter Server on a physical box and want to replace the vCenter Server running as a VM.
The vCenter Server on the physical box must have had some residual information in it from a previous configuration; all components loaded, but it never asked me which hosts to point to. I can log in, but the inventory is empty.
VMWare knowledge base has articles about repointing and re-registering the webclient and vCenter Server to the Single Sign-on server, but not about how you tell the vCenter Server what host to control.
Is this information all in the SSO server? How do you replace the vCenter Server that controls a host?
