vRealize Operation Endpoint Agent (EPops) Unable to register error

While i was doing the operations endpoint install on a new vROPS environment i experienced an strange error that i didnt see before

- Unable to register the agent due to server error.

In order to find the issue i had to log in to my vROPS server in order to review the logs. I was able to find the End Point Adapter log file here:

/storage/log/vcops/log/adapters/EndPointAdapter/

While reviewing the log i found a strange error pointing me to the adapter

I would seem that i forgot to enable the adapter for remote monitoring… Fortunately the solution was very easy. All i had to do was log in as an administrator user in my vROPs instance and Activate the Operating System / Remote Service Monitoring

After the solution was activated the agent successfully registered

- Testing secure connection ...
- Connection successful.
Enter your server username: admin
Enter your server password: **Not echoing value**
- Registering the agent with server.
- The agent has received a client certificate from server.
- The agent has been successfully registered.
