  1. Log in as root to a console session on the vRealize Automation appliance.
  2. Stop the RabbitMQ service.

    service rabbitmq-server stop

  3. Open the following file in a text editor.


  4. Set the following property to true.


  5. Save and close rabbitmq-env.conf.
  6. Reset RabbitMQ.

What to do next

After deploying the vRealize Automation appliance and activating FQDN for RabbitMQ, you can log in to the browser-based administration interface to run the consolidated Installation Wizard or to manually configure the appliance.


Alternatively, you can skip logging in so that you can take advantage of vRealize Automation silent or API based installation.
