vSphere, vCloud Air, and vCloud Director platforms support reconfiguration of existing machines to modify specifications for CPU, memory, storage, or networks.

Reconfiguration requests are subject to approval based on entitlements, policies, and the actions enabled for the machine component in the blueprint.

If you are entitled to the Cancel Reconfigure (Machine) and Execute Reconfigure (Machine) actions, you can cancel a reconfiguration or retry a failed reconfiguration.


  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a machine owner, support user, tenant administrator, or business group manager.

  • The machine you want to reconfigure has the status On or Off with no active reconfigure status.
