A tenant administrator or business group manager creates a blueprint for using an HP Server Automation boot image to deploy HP Server Automation software jobs on machines provisioned from it.

Prerequisites

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a tenant administrator or business group manager.

  • Obtain the following information from your fabric administrator:

    • The name of the HP Server Automation server to be used as the value for the EPI.Server.Name custom property.

    • The name of the HP Server Automation image to be used as the value for the Opsware.BootImage.Name custom property.

    • Optionally, information about the custom properties and values to be applied to all machines provisioned from the blueprint. See Custom Properties for HP Server Automation Integration.

      Note:

      A fabric administrator can create a build profile by using the property set HPSABuildMachineProperties, which allows HP Server Automation integration in provisioning by using a boot image, or HPSASoftwareProperties, which allows HP Server Automation integration in software deployment. These build profiles makes it easier for tenant administrators and business group managers to include this information in their blueprints.

  • For information on creating a virtual blueprint, see IaaS Configuration for Virtual Platforms.

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Blueprints > Blueprints.
  2. In the Actions column, click the down arrow and click Edit.
  3. Click the Properties tab.
  4. (Optional) : Select one or more build profiles from the Build profiles menu.

    Build profiles contain groups of custom properties. Fabric administrators can create build profiles.

  5. (Optional) : Add any custom properties to your blueprint.
    1. Click New Property.
    2. Type the custom property in the Name text box.
    3. (Optional) : Select the Encrypted check box to encrypt the custom property in the database.
    4. Type the value of the custom property in the Value text box.
    5. (Optional) : Select the Prompt user check box to require the user to provide a value when they request a machine.

      If you choose to prompt the user for a value, any value you provide for the custom property is presented to the user as the default. If you do not provide a default, the user cannot continue with the machine request until they provide a value for the custom property.

    6. Click the Save icon (save icon).
  6. Click the Build Information tab.
  7. Select Create and the ExternalProvisioningWorkflow workflow.
  8. Click OK.
