Tenant administrators and business group managers can use custom properties and optional policies to configure advanced blueprint settings such as reservation policies, Visual Basic scripts, and Active Directory cleanup.
Reservation Policies When a user requests a machine, it can be provisioned on any reservation of the appropriate type that has sufficient capacity for the machine. You can apply a reservation policy to a blueprint to restrict the machines provisioned from a that blueprint to a subset of available reservations.
Configuring Network Settings You can also specify aspects of network configuration such as static IP address assignment, the networks to which machines should be attached, and other networking details.
Enabling Visual Basic Scripts in Provisioning Visual Basic scripts are run outside of vRealize Automation as additional steps in the machine life cycle and can be used to update the custom property values of machines. Visual Basic scripts can be used with any provisioning method.
Add Active Directory Cleanup to a Blueprint Tenant administrators and business group managers configure the Active Directory Cleanup Plugin by using a set of custom properties to specify actions to take in Active Directory when a machine is deleted from a hypervisor.
Enabling Remote Desktop Connections A system administrator can create a custom remote desktop protocol file that tenant administrators and business group managers use in blueprints to configure RDP settings.
Enable Connections Using SSH Tenant administrators and business group managers can use a custom property to enable users to connect remotely to their Linux machines using SSH.
