As a fabric administrator, you create machine prefixes that are used to create names for machines provisioned through vRealize Automation. Tenant administrators and business group managers select these machine prefixes and assign them to provisioned machines through blueprints and business group defaults.

About this task

Machine prefixes are shared across all tenants. Every business group has a default machine prefix. Every blueprint must have a machine prefix or use the group default prefix. Fabric administrators are responsible for managing machine prefixes. A prefix consists of a base name to be followed by a counter of a specified number of digits. When the digits are all used, vRealize Automation rolls back to the first number.
