You can provision a machine by booting from an ISO image, then using a kickstart or autoYaSt configuration file and a Linux distribution image to install the operating system on the machine.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a tenant administrator or business group manager.

  • Gather the following information from your fabric administrator:

    1. The name and location of the ISO image.

    2. For vCenter Server integrations, the vCenter Server guest operating system version with which vCenter Server is to create the machine.

    3. (Optional) For SCVMM integrations, the ISO, virtual hard disk, or hardware profile to attach to provisioned machines.


    Your fabric administrator might have provided this information in a build profile.
