You can change the reservation of a managed machine. This ability is useful when a machine moves to a new storage path that is not available in its current reservation.

You can change the machine’s current compute resource. You can also move it to any reservation on that compute resource, including one belonging to a different business group. You must be a business group manager of the original and the target business groups to use this function.


Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a fabric administrator.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Managed Machines.
  2. Locate the machine with the reservation to change.
  3. Click Change Reservation in the drop-down menu.
  4. Select values from the drop-down menus as required.
  5. Click OK.
