The steps required to integrate HP Server Automation with vRealize Automation depend on which provisioning method you want to use and whether you want to enable software installation from HP Server Automation.

When provisioning virtual machines, you can select from the following integration methods:

  • Provision by using a system from which HP Server Automation deploys images that is available on the network.

  • Provision by cloning by using a template that is prepared for HP Server Automation.

You 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 you can specify HP Server Automation policies in the blueprint to be applied to every machine that is provisioned from that blueprint.
