IaaS Integration for Multi-Machine Services describes how to integrate multi-machine services in an existing VMware vRealize Automation deployment.

This documentation is intended to be used with the following prerequisite guides:

  • IaaS Configuration for Virtual Platforms

  • IaaS Configuration for Cloud Platforms

  • IaaS Configuration for Physical Machines

After the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is set up for a relevant machine type, this documentation guides you through the following processes:

  • Preparing for provisioning

  • Creating and configuring multi-machine blueprints

  • Configuring component machines for network and security virtualization

All of the IaaS configuration tasks that should be completed before machine provisioning are included in this document and its prerequisite guides. For information about managing provisioned machines, see Tenant Administration.


Not all features and capabilities of vRealize Automation are available in all editions. For a comparison of feature sets in each edition, see https://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-automation/.

Intended Audience

This information is intended for IaaS administrators, tenant administrators and business group managers, and fabric administrators who want to integrate multi-machine services and network and security virtualization into their vRealize Automation deployment.
