You allocate compute resources 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 > Endpoints > Fabric Groups.
  3. In the Name column, point to the fabric group name SFO Fabric Group, and click Edit.
  4. On the Edit Fabric Group page, select  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 unable to see the compute cluster after sufficient time has passed, restart both proxy agent services in the virtual machines sfo01ias01a.sfo01.rainpole.local and sfo01ias01b.sfo01.rainpole.local.

  5. Navigate to Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources
  6. In the Name column, point to the compute cluster sfo01-w01-comp01, and click Data Collection.
  7. Click the Request now buttons in each field on the page.

    Wait for the data collection process to complete.

  8. Click Refresh, and verify that Status for both Inventory and Network and Security Inventory shows Succeeded.
