You generate a virtual machine CSV data file to import, update, or migrate virtual machines to a vRealize Automation deployment.
Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a fabric administrator and as a business group manager.
- Select .
- Click Generate CSV File.
- Select the machine type from the Machines drop-down menu.
Virtual machine is managed in a vRealize Automation deployment and can be viewed in the console. Select this option if you are updating a machine or migrating from one environment to another.
Virtual machine exists in a hypervisor but is not managed in a vRealize Automation deployment and cannot be viewed in the console. Select this option if you are importing a virtual machine.
- Select the Business group default value.
- Select the Owner default value.
- Select the Blueprint default value.
If you select Unmanaged for the machine type and select a value for Business group and Blueprint, you might see the following results in the CSV data file:
Host Reservation (Name or ID) = INVALID_RESERVATION
Host To Storage (Name or ID) = INVALID_HOST_RESERVATION_TO_STORAGE
This happens when you do not have a reservation in the selected business group for the host machine that also hosts the unmanaged machine. If you have a reservation in that business group for the unmanaged machine's host, the Host Reservation and Host To Storage values fill in properly.
- Select the resource type from the Resource drop-down menu.
Information required to access a virtualization host.
