Amazon AWS environment, prepare Amazon AWS to communicate with the guest agent and Software bootstrap agent, and understand how Amazon AWS features map to vRealize Automation features.
Amazon AWS User Roles and Credentials Required for vRealize Automation You must configure credentials in Amazon AWS with the permissions required for vRealize Automation to manage your environment.
Allow Amazon AWS to Communicate with the Software Bootstrap Agent and Guest Agent If you intend to provision application blueprints that contain Software, or if you want the ability to further customize provisioned machines by using the guest agent, you must enable connectivity between your Amazon AWS environment, where your machines are provisioned, and your vRealize Automation environment, where the agents download packages and receive instructions.
Using Optional Amazon Features vRealize Automation supports several Amazon features, including Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, elastic load balancers, elastic IP addresses, and elastic block storage.
Scenario: Configure Network-to-Amazon VPC Connectivity for a Proof of Concept Environment As the IT professional setting up a proof of concept environment to evaluate vRealize Automation, you want to temporarily configure network-to-Amazon VPC connectivity to support the vRealize Automation Software feature.
