You can integrate vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager directly with a My VMware account to access vRealize Suite entitlements. Using the My VMware integration allows you to download all or selected product binaries for install and upgrade.

Prerequisites

Note:

Using integration with My VMware simplifies and automates downloading vRealize Suite product binaries to the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager repository. If your organization must restrict outbound traffic from the management components of the Software-Defined Data Center, you can upload vRealize Suite product binaries to the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager appliance directly.

  • vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager is registered with My VMware.

  • Your My VMware account has permissions to view licenses and download products from your entitlement account.

  • If your organization requires the use of an HTTP Proxy, ensure that it is configured and enabled.
