To allow vRealize Automation to manage the infrastructure, IaaS administrators create endpoints and configure user credentials for those endpoints. When you create a vSphere Endpoint, vRealize Automation can communicate with the vSphere environment and discover compute resources that are managed by vCenter Server, collect data, and provision machines.

    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://vra01svr01.rainpole.local/vcac/org/rainpole.
