A system administrator can optionally identify the HP Server Automation policies to make available in vRealize Automation. Machine requestors can select from among these policies to install software on the requested machine, or HP Server Automation policies can be specified in the blueprint to be applied to every machine that is provisioned from that blueprint.



  1. Open your blueprint in a text editor.
  2. Include the custom property in your blueprint


  3. Replace software_policy_name with the name of the policy.

    For example where you want to install HP Server Automation Windows ISM Tool, HP Server Automation Linux ISM Tool, or both, the blueprint might contain the following custom property/value pairs:

    Vrm.Software.Id1000=Windows ISMtool
    Vrm.Software.Id1001=RedHatLinux ISMtool

  4. Save your changes and close the blueprint file.
