Moving msu-vcenter to aglt2.org
msu-vcenter was initially configured to run on the internal network. After some discussion with Shawn, it was decided that it would be best for it to be on aglt2.org instead. msu-vcenter was already configured, so instead of making a new vCenter install, the existing install was reconfigured to use aglt2.org.
After adding the new NIC and configuring the IP address, SSO was configured but was not completely functional. msu-vcenter was able to see and manage umvmgt's hosts, but umvmgt could not connect to msu-vcenter. When one logged into umvmgt, an error message like "could not connect to msu-vcenter;msulocal:####/sdk" popped up at the top. After some googling I found the problem. Apparently there is an internal Lookup Service which points a remote machine to all of other services that msu-vcenter offers. Although msu-vcenter itself presents itself on aglt2.org, the Lookup Service was pointing umvmgt to the msulocal domain. This was fixed with the following steps:
- In the advanced settings of msu-vcenter, any option with text pointing to a msulocal site was changed to aglt2.org (I had to use the windows client for this. The web client seems to either be bugged or not allow changes to these settings)
- Add msu-vcenter.aglt2.org to /etc/hosts on msu-vcenter
