As a part of the scenario implementation, you allocate compute resources in the shared edge and compute cluster to fabric groups so that vRealize Automation can use the resources in that compute resource for that fabric group when provisioning virtual machines.


  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.



      User name






  2. Navigate to Infrastructure > End Points > Fabric Groups.
  3. In the Name column, place the mouse over the LAX Fabric Group fabric group , and click Edit.
  4. On the Edit Fabric Group page, select the lax01-w01-comp01 shared edge and compute cluster from the Compute Resources table, and click OK.

    It might take several minutes for vRealize Automation to connect to the Compute vCenter Server system and associated clusters. If you are still not able to see the shared edge and compute cluster after sufficient time has passed, try to restart both proxy agent services in the  lax01ias01a and lax01ias01b virtual machines.

  5. Navigate to Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources
  6. In the Compute Resource column, place your mouse over the lax01-w01-comp01 shared edge and compute cluster, and click Data Collection in the menu list that appears.
  7. Wait for the data collection process to complete and verify that the Status for both Inventory and Network and Security Inventory shows Succeeded.
