Sie können bestimmte benutzerdefinierte Eigenschaften zu einer vCloud Air- oder vCloud Director-Maschinenkomponentendefinition in einem Blueprint hinzufügen.

Für Maschinenkomponenten, die nicht über eine Registerkarte Netzwerk oder Sicherheit verfügen, können Sie benutzerdefinierte Eigenschaften für Netzwerk und Sicherheit wie z. B. VirtualMachine.Network0.Name zur entsprechenden Registerkarte Eigenschaften in der Design-Arbeitsfläche hinzufügen. Die Eigenschaften von NSX-Netzwerk-, -Sicherheits- und -Lastausgleichsdiensten gelten nur für vSphere-Maschinen.

Tabelle 1. Benutzerdefinierte Eigenschaften für vCloud Air- und vCloud Director-Maschinenkomponenten in der Design-Arbeitsfläche

Benutzerdefinierte Eigenschaft



Gibt einen Benutzernamen mit Administratorzugriff auf die Zieldomäne in Active Directory an. Schließen Sie die Benutzerdomäne nicht in die Anmeldedaten ein, die Sie an vCloud Director oder vCloud Air senden.


Gibt das Kennwort für die Eigenschaft Sysprep.Identification.DomainAdmin an.


Gibt den Namen der Domäne an, der in Active Directory beigetreten werden soll.


Disables the editing of a specific disk when reconfiguring a machine. Set to True to disable display of the edit capacity option for a specific volume. The True value is case-sensitive. The N value is the 0-based index of the disk.

Alternatively, you can set the VirtualMachine.DiskN.IsFixed custom property to True in the VirtualMachineProperties table in the database or use the Repository API to specify a URI value such as .../Repository/Data/ManagementModelEntities.svc/VirtualMachines(guid'60D93A8A-F541-4CE0-A6C6-78973AC0F1D2')/VirtualMachineProperties.


Specifies the storage reservation policy to use to find storage for disk N. Also assigns the named storage reservation policy to a volume. To use this property, substitute the volume number for N in the property name and specify a storage reservation policy name as the value. This property is equivalent to the storage reservation policy name specified on the blueprint. Disk numbering must be sequential. This property is valid for all Virtual and vCloud reservations. This property is not valid for Physical, Amazon, or OpenStack reservations.


Set to true to specify that all the EULAs for the VM templates of the vCloud Air or vCloud Director endpoints are accepted during provisioning.


Specifies the name of the network to connect to, for example the network device N to which a machine is attached. This is equivalent to a network interface card (NIC).

By default, a network is assigned from the network paths available on the reservation on which the machine is provisioned. Also see VirtualMachine.NetworkN.AddressType.

You can ensure that a network device is connected to a specific network by setting the value of this property to the name of a network on an available reservation. For example, if you give properties for N= 0 and 1, you get 2 NICs and their assigned value, provided the network is selected in the associated reservation.

VirtualMachine.NetworkN custom properties are specific to blueprints and machines. When a machine is requested, network and IP address allocation is performed before the machine is assigned to a reservation. Because blueprints are not guaranteed to be allocated to a specific reservation, do not use this property on a reservation.

You can add this property to a vCloud Air or vCloud Director machine component in a blueprint. This property is not supported for on-demand NAT or on-demand routed networks.

Informationen hierzu finden Sie unter Benutzerdefinierte Eigenschaften für Netzwerke.


Specifies how IP address allocation is supplied to the network provider, where NetworkN is the network number, starting with 0. The following values are available:

  • DHCP

  • Static

  • MANUAL (available for vCloud Air and vCloud Director only)

This property is available for configuring vCloud Air, vCloud Director, and vSphere machine components in the blueprint. Also see VirtualMachine.NetworkN.Name. This property is not supported for on-demand NAT or on-demand routed networks.


Set to true to specify that the reconfigure machine action restarts the specified machine. By default, the reconfigure machine action does not restart the machine.

Performing a hot add of CPU, memory, or storage causes the reconfigure machine action to fail and not to restart the machine unless the Hot Add setting is enabled in vSphere for the machine or template. You can add VirtualMachine.Reconfigure.DisableHotCpu=true to a machine component in a vRealize Automation blueprint to disable the Hot Add setting and force the machine to restart regardless of the vSphere Hot Add setting. The custom property is only available for machine types that support hardware reconfiguration, which are vSphere, vCloud Air, and vCloud Director.


Specifies a threshold integer value for a compute resource such that lease synchronization between vCloud Director and vRealize Automation only occur for vCloud Director or vCloud Air-provisioned machines that are set to expire in vCloud Director or vCloud Air in that time period. If a conflict is found, the lease value is synchronized to match the lease length defined in vRealize Automation. The default VCloud.Lease.Sync.TimeBufferMins value is 720 minutes, which is 12 hours. If VCloud.Lease.Sync.TimeBufferMins is not present, the default value is used. For example, if the default values are used, vRealize Automation runs the lease synchronization check workflow every 45 minutes, which is the workflow default, and only the leases of machines that are set to expire within 12 hours are changed to match the lease length defined in vRealize Automation.


Set to true to assign the endpoint account as the vCloud Air or vCloud Director machine owner for provisioning and import operations. For change ownership operations, the owner is not changed on the endpoint. If not specified or set to false, the vRealize Automation owner is the machine owner.


Set to true to clone an identical copy of the vCloud Air or vCloud Director template for machine provisioning. The machine is provisioned as an identical copy of the template. Settings specified in the template, including storage path, supersede settings specified in the blueprint. The only changes from the template are the names of the cloned machines, which are generated from the machine prefix specified in the blueprint.

vCloud Air or vCloud Director machines that are provisioned as identical copies can use networks and storage profiles that are not available in the vRealize Automation reservation. To avoid having unaccounted reservation allocations, verify that the storage profile or network specified in the template is available in the reservation.


Specifies the sharing mode of the machine’s VMware SCSI bus. Possible values are based on the VirtualSCSISharing ENUM value and include noSharing, physicalSharing, and virtualSharing.

The VMware.SCSI.Sharing property is not available for use with the CloneWorkflow provisioning workflow. If you specify the CloneWorkflow provisioning workflow when configuring your machine component in the blueprint design canvas, you cannot use the VMware.SCSI.Sharing property.


For vCloud Air, vCloud Director, or vSphere machine components in blueprints, specifies the SCSI machine type using one of the following case-sensitive values:

  • buslogic

    Use BusLogic emulation for the virtual disk.

  • lsilogic

    Use LSILogic emulation for the virtual disk (default).

  • lsilogicsas

    Use LSILogic SAS 1068 emulation for the virtual disk.

  • pvscsi

    Use para-virtualization emulation for the virtual disk.

  • none

    Use if a SCSI controller does not exist for this machine.

The VMware.SCSI.Type property is not available for use with the CloneWorkflow provisioning workflow. If you specify the CloneWorkflow provisioning workflow when configuring your machine component in the blueprint design canvas, you cannot use the VMware.SCSI.Type property.
