You can create endpoints to allow vRealize Automation to communicate with the XenServer environment and discover compute resources, collect data, and provision machines.

Before you begin

  • 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 Installing vRealize Automation 7.2.

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Agents.
  2. Enter the fully qualified DNS name of your XenServer 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 collects data from your endpoint and discovers your compute resources.

What to do next

Add the compute resources from your endpoint to a fabric group. See Create a Fabric Group.
