On-Premises VMware Identity Manager Service 19.03 Will Not Contain an Embedded Connector


The embedded connector component is not available in the On-Premises VMware Identity Manager Service 19.03 release. Customers who use connector functionality will be required to deploy an external Windows connector.

For additional information on the VMware Identity Manager 19.03 release, please refer to the release notes here


Customer Impact

There is no loss of functionality as a result of this embedded connector deprecation.

If customers are currently using the embedded connector component, during upgrade of the On-Premises VMware Identity Manager service to 19.03 version, they will need to migrate settings from their embedded connector to a new external VMware Identity Manager Connector for Windows in order to satisfy use cases earlier performed by the embedded connector. For detailed migration instructions, see the upgrade guides.

Downtime is incurred during upgrade to deploy an external VMware Identity Manager Windows connector and to manually configuring non-password authentication methods on the connector.
