IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vRealize Automation to communicate with the Xen pool master and discover compute resources, collect data, and provision machines.

Prerequisites

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as an IaaS administrator.

  • A system administrator must install a proxy agent with stored credentials that correspond to your endpoint. See Installation and Configuration.

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Agents.
  2. Enter the fully qualified DNS name of your Xen pool master in the Compute resource text box.
    Note:

    Do not enter the name of the Xen pool. You must enter the name of the pool master.

  3. Select the proxy agent that your system administrator installed for this endpoint from the Proxy agent name drop-down menu.
  4. (Optional) : Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Click OK.

Results

vRealize Automation can now discover your compute resources.

What to do next

Add the compute resources from your endpoint to a fabric group.
