Preparation is required by IaaS administrators, tenant administrators, and fabric administrators to bring resources under
vRealize Automation management, allocate resources to users, prepare for provisioning machines, and create machine blueprints.
Custom Properties in Machine Provisioning, Blueprints, and Build Profiles Custom properties are name-value pairs used to specify attributes of a machine or to override default specifications.
Configuring IaaS Checklist There are required and optional configurations that are performed by IaaS administrators, tenant administrators, and fabric administrators in order to fully implement and customize the IaaS feature of vRealize Automation.
Bringing Resources Under vCloud Automation Center Management For vRealize Automation to manage your infrastructure, you must create endpoints and store administrator-level user credentials for those endpoints.
Configure Machine Prefixes Fabric administrators create machine prefixes that are used to create names for machines provisioned through vRealize Automation. Tenant administrators and business group managers select these machine prefixes and assign them to provisioned machines through blueprints and business group defaults.
Create a Business Group Tenant administrators create business groups to associate a set of services and resources to a set of users, often corresponding to a line of business, department, or other organizational unit. Users must belong to a business group to request machines.
Physical Reservations A physical reservation is a set of physical machines reserved for and available to a particular business group for provisioning.
