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. For a single machine deployment, you can also change the business group for the machine.

Before you begin

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

About this task

You can change the machine’s current compute resource. You can also move it to any reservation on that compute resource.

You can also move a machine in a single machine deployment to a different business group if the machine owner is a member of the target business group. You must be a business group manager of the original and the target business group to use this function.

The change business group action does not recognize reservation policies. If there is a reservation policy assigned to the machine, you cannot change its business group.

  2. Locate the machine with the reservation to change.
