IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vRealize Automation to communicate with your SCVMM environment and discover compute resources, collect data, and provision machines.

Prerequisites

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as an IaaS administrator.

  • You must install and configure a DEM agent to manage your Hyper-V (SCVMM) endpoint. For information, see SCVMM Requirements.

  • Store User Credentials.

For related information, see Preparing Your SCVMM Environment.

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.
  2. Select New > Virtual > Hyper-V (SCVMM).
  3. Enter a name in the Name text box.
  4. (Optional) : Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Enter the URL for the endpoint in the Address text box.

    The URL must be of the type: FQDN or IP_address.

    For example: mycompany-scvmm1.mycompany.local.

  6. Enter the administrative-level user name and password that you stored for this endpoint.

    If you did not already store the credentials, you can do so now.

  7. (Optional) : Add custom properties.
  8. 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.
