Starting the vRA7 in built vRO Configuration Service

You may have noticed this on the vRA7 (and earlier versions) start  that the vRO Confi service is stopped by default

While this will usually not be used in a production environment it is handy for a lab or POC.

First we need to enable SSH on the vRA appliance:

Then SSH in to the vRA7 Appliance:

Run the command:

service vco-configurator start

And to confirm

service vco-configurator status

Now the configurator starts. Note that the credentials are the same as the vRA appliance.
