Configuring PSC HA 6.5

To configure the PSCs for load balancing by running the updateSSOConfig.py and updateLsEndpoint.py scripts.

Notes:
  • The updateSSOConfig.py script updates information local to each PSC and must be ran on all PSCs in the HA instance.
  • The updateLsEndpoint.py script updates the ServiceRegistration Endpoints in VMDir and only needs to be ran on one of the PSCs in the HA instance.
Running the updateSSOConfig.py script
  1. Connect to the PSC with an administrative user.
  2. Open an elevated privilege command prompt.
  3. Navigate to C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmware-sso\bin with this command:

    cd "C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmware-sso\bin"

  4. Run this command:

    "%VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN%"\python updateSSOConfig.py --lb-fqdn=psc-ha-vip

    For example:

    "%VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN%"python updateSSOConfig.py --lb-fqdn=loadbalancer.vmware.com

  5. Repeat these steps on any remaining PSCs.
Running the updateLsEndpoint.py script
  1. Connect to the PSC with an administrative user.
  2. Open an elevated privilege command prompt.
  3. Navigate to C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmware-sso\bin with this command:

    cd "C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmware-sso\bin"

  4. Run this command

    "%VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN%"python UpdateLsEndpoint.py --lb-fqdn=psc-ha-vip.domain.com --user=administrative_user --password=password

    For example:

    "%VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN%"python UpdateLsEndpoint.py --lb-fqdn=psc-ha-vip.domain.com --user=administrator@vsphere.local --password=VMware123$

    Note: Only perform this step on a single PSC node.
