  • Verify that you have a password to log in to the browser-based administration interface hosted by the vRealize Automation appliance, or the vRealize Automation appliance operating system command-line console as root. For more information see Deploy the vRealize Automation Appliance in the Installing and Upgrading vRealize Automation guide.
  • Verify that you have a vSphere endpoint created in your vRealize Automation. For more information, see Create a vSphere Endpoint in the vRealize Automation documentation.
