The build information settings determine how a machine is provisioned. Machine resource settings control the resources that a machine that is provisioned by the blueprint consumes.

Procedure

  1. Click the Build Information tab.
  2. Select whether machines provisioned from this blueprint are classified as Desktop or Server from the Blueprint type drop-down menu.

    This information determines which license type vRealize Automation uses when it provisions the machines.

  3. Select Clone from the Action drop-down menu.
  4. Select vAppCloneWorkflow from the Provisioning workflow drop-down menu.
  5. (Optional) : Click the Browse icon next to the Clone from text box.

    Template specification is optional when you create a vApp component blueprint. By default, the template specified in the Clone from text box on the vApp blueprint is used. You can specify a template to clone from on a vApp component blueprint if there are one or more settings in the template that you want to use in your component blueprint, for example a specific endpoint, compute resource, and storage setting combination.

  6. (Optional) : Select a template to clone.

    Blueprint Type

    Available Templates

    Shared

    The list includes all templates for all reservations. No validation is available to ensure that the template you select exists in the reservation used to provision a machine from this blueprint.

    Local (you selected a business group for the blueprint)

    You only see templates that exist on reservations for the business group you selected.

  7. Specify CPU settings for provisioned machines.
    1. Required: Enter the minimum number of CPUs in the Minimum text box.

      If you only provide a minimum, this number becomes the value for all machines provisioned from this blueprint.

    2. (Optional) : Enter the maximum number of CPUs in the Maximum text box to allow users to select their own settings within the range that you provide.
  8. Specify memory settings for provisioned machines.
    1. Required: Enter the minimum amount of memory in the Minimum text box.

      If you only provide a minimum, this number becomes the value for all machines provisioned from this blueprint.

    2. (Optional) : Enter the maximum amount of memory in the Maximum text box to allow users to select their own settings within the range that you provide.
  9. Specify storage settings for provisioned machines.
    1. Required: Enter the minimum amount of storage in the Minimum text box.

      If you only provide a minimum, this number becomes the value for all machines provisioned from this blueprint.

    2. (Optional) : Enter the maximum amount of storage in the Maximum text box to allow users to select their own settings within the range that you provide.
  10. Add Storage volumes.
    1. Click New Volume.
    2. Required: Enter the capacity in the Capacity (GB) text box.
    3. (Optional) : Enter a drive letter and mount path in the Drive Letter/Mount Path text box.
    4. (Optional) : Enter a name in the Label text box.
    5. (Optional) : Select a Storage Reservation Policy from the drop-down menu.

      This option requires additional configuration by a fabric administrator to create storage reservation policies.

    6. Click the Save icon (Save).
  11. (Optional) : Select Allow user to see and change storage reservation policies.

    If selected, users who are provisioning machines can see and change the storage reservation policies that you apply to blueprints.

  12. Enter the maximum number of volumes a user can select for provisioned machines in the Max # of volumes text box.

    Leave blank to accept the default of 15, or enter 0 to disable adding volumes.

  13. Enter the maximum number of network adapters a user can select for provisioned machines in the Max # of network adapters text box.

    For example, if your integration platform has a limit of 10 network adapters, set your maximum at or below this threshold so that users cannot cause provisioning to fail by selecting more network adapters than your platform supports.
