Fabric administrators can import virtual machines that currently exist on their compute resources outside of vRealize Automation.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a fabric administrator and as a business group manager.

  • Create the business groups to which you want to assign imported machines.

  • A tenant administrator or business group manager must create a blueprint to apply to machines you import.

  • If you intend to assign cost profiles to your compute resources, create the cost profiles you want to assign to your compute resources.
