IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vRealize Automation to communicate with the Hyper-V environment 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 Hyper-V server in the Compute resource text box.
  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.
