Using the VMware Managed Object Browser to verify the server name
When adding NetBackup credentials for a VMware server, enter the server name exactly as configured in the VMware server (whether short or fully-qualified). If the name you enter for the credentials does not match the name as defined on the VMware server, the credential validation fails.
You can use the vSphere Managed Object Browser to verify the server's name.
To verify the server's name
- In a web browser, open the Managed Object Browser (MOB) by entering the fully-qualified domain name of the VMware server and /mob.
For example: https://vcenter1.acmecorp.com/mob
- Navigate to the ManagedObjectReference:HostSystem and find the name value for the server.
The object structure is site-dependent.
- When you create NetBackup credentials for the server, enter the name value exactly as it appears in the MOB.
For more information on the MOB, see your vSphere documentation.
