Creating and locating the js-io-rights.conf file on the vRealize Orchestrator Appliance (formerly known as vCenter Orchestrator Appliance) (2039821)

  • 8 Ratings


You cannot manually create the js-io-rights.conf file on an Orchestrator Appliance instance. Manually creating the file is applicable only for Windows systems. The js-io-rights.conf file is created when a workflow tries to access the Orchestrator server file system.


Run a workflow that accesses the Orchestrator server file system and locate the js-io-rights.conf file.
  1. Log in to the Orchestrator client as an administrator.
  2. In the workflows hierarchical list, expand Library > Troubleshooting.
  3. Right-click the Export logs and application settings workflow and select Start workflow.
    Note: This is an example of a workflow that tries to access the Orchestrator server file system.
  4. Click Submit.
    The js-io-rights.conf file is created.
  5. Restart the Orchestrator server.
  6. Log in to the Orchestrator Appliance Linux console as root and navigate to the /opt/vmo/app-server/server/vmo/conf directory.
  7. Locate the js-io-rights.conf file.
  8. (Optional) Verify the default content of the js-io-rights.conf file.

    -rwx /
    +rwx /var/run/orchestrator
    +rx ../../configuration/jetty/logs/
    +rx ../server/vmo/log/
    +rx ../bin/
    +rx ./
    +rx ../server/vmo/conf/
    +rx ../server/vmo/conf/plugins/
    +rx ../server/vmo/deploy/vmo-server/vmo-ds.xml
    +rx ../../apps/
    +r ../../version.txt
