The virtual or physical Windows machine that hosts the IaaS components must meet configuration requirements for the IaaS database, the IaaS server components, the IaaS Manager Service, and Distributed Execution Managers.

The Installation Wizard runs a vRealize Automation prerequisite checker on all IaaS Windows servers to ensure that they meet the configuration necessary for installation. In addition to the prerequisite checker, address the following prerequisites separately.

  • As a best practice, place all IaaS Windows servers in the same domain.

  • Create or identify a domain account to use for installation, one that has administrator privileges on all IaaS Windows servers.
