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.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the vRealize Automation Rainpole portal.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://vra01svr01.rainpole.local/vcac/org/rainpole.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.

  2. Navigate to Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints, and click New > Virtual > vSphere (vCenter).
