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

Perform this procedure to take snapshot of each virtual machine listed below.
