Virtual machines from an existing vSphere environment can be imported into vCloud Automation Center to manage them from there. You perform this action as an Infrastructure Administrator with a tool named Infrastructure Organizer that you will find under the Infrastructure tab in your vCAC administration portal.
The default timeout value for the vCAC web console is 30 minutes. You might find this not long enough or too long, whatever your reasons are, if you want to change it you can.
Access the vCAC Appliance through SSH (with Putty for example) or access the virtual appliance console directly to modify this file:
for 6.0 /usr/lib/vcac/server/webapps/shell-ui-app/WEB-INF/web.xml
for 6.2 /usr/lib/vcac/server/webapps/vcac/WEB-INF/web.xml
After deployment of vCenter Operations Manager there are two users in the system that have access to the entire environment. These are the built-in admin-user of vCops and any user that is assigned to the Administrator role in vCenter. In the image below you can see that there are two privileges assigned in the Administrator role that allow anyone assigned a permission with this role to access vCenter Operations Manager as an administrative user.
It is possible to reset your vCenter Operations Manager configuration to the default settings. This applies to the default policy but also to any other policies that you may have created in your environment. Open the Configuration panel, click the Default Policy or any other policy you would like reset. Next in the Clone from field select Original Defaults and click Ok to save the settings. All configuration settings for that policy are now reset to the default vCops settings.
