As a best practice, take snapshots of the virtual machines deployed as part of the vRealize Automation installation. The vRealize Automation deployment is a complex process, and if the deployment fails, these snapshots are available as a failback.

  2. Navigate to lax01m01vc01.lax01.rainpole.local>lax01-m01dc>lax01-m01fd-vraias.
  3. Right-click lax01ias01a and select Snapshots > Take Snapshot.
