      The Windows user must have administrator rights.

    2. Enter the fully qualified domain name in the form of a fully qualified domain name and IP address for the vRealize Automation appliance.

    5. Enter the host name in the form of a fully qualified domain name and IP address for each component.

      Windows machines that host the Model Manager Web service, Manager Service, and Microsoft SQL Server database must be able to resolve each other by Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) name. Authentication to vRealize Automation through an external VMware Identity Manager, either by clicking on the vRealize Automation application icon in the VMware Identity Manager catalog or manually logging in tovRealize Automation through the tenant URL, fails with an error Identity Manager encountered an error. Contact your admin and provide information displayed below.

    6. If the database instance is a pre-existing one or it is on a non-default port, include the port number in instance specification by using the form dbhost,SQL_port_number\SQLinstance. If the database instance is a new one and default instance is expected, then provide hostname of the DB VM only. If you need to specify a port number or named instance, use FQDN,Port\Instance format. If the database already exists and no changes needed then from advanced properties we can provide the database name. For more information, see Microsoft SQL server.
      Note:

      The Microsoft SQL default port number is 1443. During the installation of vRealize Automation, the first Web node task might fail after the vRealize Automation management agent is installed. This is caused by either a database installation failure or a connection timeout.
