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.
      Setting Value
      User name vra-admin-rainpole
      Password vra-admin-rainpole_password
      Domain rainpole.local
  2. Navigate to Infrastructure > Endpoints > Fabric Groups.
  3. In the Name column, point the mouse to the LAX Fabric Group, and click Edit.
  4. On the Edit Fabric Group page, select lax01-w01-comp01 from the Compute resources table, and click OK.
    Note: It might take several minutes for vRealize Automation to connect to the Compute vCenter Server system and associated clusters. If you still do not see the shared edge and compute cluster after some time, 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 Name column, mouse over on the shared edge and compute cluster lax01-w01-comp01, and click Data Collection.
  7. Click the Request now buttons for Inventory and Network and Security Inventory pages.
    Wait a few seconds for the data collection process to finish.
  8. Click Refresh, verify that Status for both Inventory and Network and Security Inventory shows Succeeded and click OK.
