You use virtual machine templates to create machine blueprints and publish them in a service catalog in vRealize Automation. You can use the predefined Linux and Windows virtual machine templates that are available in the vCenter Server content library after you deploy the VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center.

Creating virtual machine templates from a content library includes several tasks. At a high level, you first create a virtual machine by importing it from the content library. Then you convert the virtual machine to a virtual machine template.

Prerequisites

Verify that you have performed the content library configuration for Region B according to the VMware Validated Design Deployment Guide for Region B.

  • Connect to Content Library of the Compute vCenter Server Instance in Region B
