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


  • 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.


  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.


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.
