- Log in to the machine of the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server as administrator or as a user that has rights to run the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager service.
- Stop the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager service in case it's running.
- In the root installation directory of the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager server, open a command prompt and run the mhmd executable with the following arguments:
Path to the
extension.xmlfile in the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager installation
IP address or host name of the vCenter Server System
User name to log into vCenter Server
Password to log into vCenter Server
Path to the
mhm.cfgfile in the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager Installation
Thumbprint of the current vCenter Server certificate. You must always pass the thumbprint even if you have not replaced the vCenter certificate.
Path to the private key of the new vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager certificate. This argument is optional.
