(Enterprise Deployments Only) On the Manager Service Role page, you configure the separate vRealize Automation Windows machine that hosts the IaaS Manager Service.

In an enterprise deployment, you separately specify the host of the Manager Service, which is a Windows service. For high availability, multiple hosts are supported.

Setting

Description

Active

Select the primary Manager Service host. Any additional hosts serve as backups to the primary.

When you install using the Installation Wizard, the service transparently fails over to a backup when a problem occurs. See About Automatic Manager Service Failover.

IaaS Host Name

Enter the FQDN of each IaaS Windows machine that hosts the Manager Service.

Username

In DOMAIN\username format, enter the service account. The account must be a domain account with local administrator privileges on the IaaS Windows server.

Password

Enter the account password.

Installation Path

Leave clear to accept the default of %ProgramFiles(x86)%\VMware, or enter an alternative location.

If you install multiple IaaS components on the same Windows machine, install them all under the same installation path.
