About VEPA Client user right

Status : Waiting for Votes

DP: 11.00.P1

CM OS: rhel8.4 (hostname:demo-bak.demo.local)

VEPA agent OS: rhel8.4 (hostname:demo-ora.demo.loca)

ESXi (VMware vsphere 6.5U3)

If CM and VPEA are installed on two different servers(Linux), the integration will failed.

We can find the following errors in VEPA debugs:

[131:51] User "root.root@demo-ora.demo.local" is not in the Cell Server user list

userlist:

"root" "root" "*" demo-bak.demo.local "admin" "Yes"

"Telemetry User" "java" "applet" * "admin" "Yes"

"IDB AS user" "hpdp" "*" demo-bak.demo.local "admin" "Yes"

After we add the root.root@demo-ora.demo.local into user list, then the integration will succeed.

userlist:

"" "root" "root" demo-ora.demo.local "admin" "Yes"

"root" "root" "*" demo-bak.demo.local "admin" "Yes"

"Telemetry User" "java" "applet" * "admin" "Yes"

"IDB AS user" "hpdp" "*" demo-bak.demo.local "admin" "Yes"

we retried the integration when installed the VPEA on a windows server, the integration succeeded without adding the Windows administrator user into the userlist.

I know this is true for VMware integration and other integration.

Customer requested us to change the design for Linux VEPA, he hopes Linux VPEA can works even if Linux OS user is not added into DP userlist.
