The vSphere Client plug-in can be re-registered, or the credentials can be changed, at any time after installation. This includes registering the plug-in with a different vCenter server if needed. If the plug-in is going to be installed on a different vCenter server, it should first be unregistered with the current server.
Registering the vSphere Client Plug-in
Registering the plug-in is done via the /opt/LifeKeeper/bin/registerPlugin.pl tool. This tool takes three arguments: the vCenter server, the username and the password. All are required to re-register the vSphere Client plug-in. An example of running this tool would look like (all on one line):
/opt/LifeKeeper/bin/registerPlugin.pl —server=myvcenter.mydomain.com —username=vcuser —password=vcpassword
Unregistering the vSphere Client Plug-in
The plug-ins installed from the SMC server can be listed with the following command:
To remove the plug-in, the following command can be run (all on one line):
/opt/LifeKeeper/bin/registerPlugin.pl —action=remove —key=com.sios.us.lkssp
