Figure 6. vSphere Add Vendor Provider Menu


In the Add Vendor Provider window, enter name, URL and login credentials to the server containing the VASA

provider you installed earlier.
Before you begin:
In the URL field, paste the URL you copied when you clicked Copy Provider URL to Clipboard in the VASA
Configuration Manager. Make sure the URL in the Add Vendor Provider window matches the following

– /vasa/services/vasaService must be appended following your port number (for example, if the location of

your server containing the VASA provider is https://kswa-vasa3-prov:8443 the value in the URL field must

be: https://kswa-vasa3-prov:8443/vasa/services/vasaService where https specifies an SSL connection and

8443 is the default port number for the VASA provider.

– If you specified a different port number in the VASA Configuration Manager window than the default, make

sure you use your valid port number.

When entering a login and password value, make sure they match what you used in the VASA Configuration
Manager window.


If you require a vendor-signed security certificate, select Use Vendor Provider Certificate and enter the location of

the certificate. Otherwise, leave that checkbox empty.


When complete, click OK to register the VASA provider with your vCenter Server.
