Connecting a System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) Server to App Controller
To connect App Controller to a VMM server
On the Clouds page, click Connect and then click VMM Server.
In the Connect dialog box, enter a name for this connection. This name is displayed in the Name column of Clouds page.
Add an optional description in the Description text box.
In the Server name text box, enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the VMM management server.
In the Port field, enter a port number that matches the port used by the VMM management server (default: 8100).
Check Automatically import SSL certificates if you plan to copy files and templates to and from VMM cloud libraries.
Note SSL certificates must be imported to the App Controller server in order to copy files or templates to and from VMM cloud libraries. In order for the import to succeed, users need to be part of all of the following roles: the local administrator of the App Controller server, local administrator of the VMM server, and VMM administrator.
Click OK to create the connection.
You may then be asked to select which VMM user role to use from the new VMM server connection for the current session.
