After you familiarize yourself with your
vRealize Automation proof of concept, you want to configure it as your development environment. You and your IT team can create and test blueprints in this development environment and then export them into your production environment.
Scenario: Configure the Default Tenant for Rainpole As the system administrator, you want to configure your vRealize Automation instance as an ongoing development environment. You create local user accounts and assign yourself to the tenant administrator role. Using the tenant administrator privileges, you start configuring vRealize Automation as a development environment for building and testing blueprints.
Scenario: Configure IaaS Resources for Rainpole Using a combination of your IaaS administrator and tenant administrator privileges, you create a prefix to prepend to vSphere machines created in vRealize Automation, organize your vSphere resources into a fabric group, and allocate resources to your custom group of vRealize Automation architects.
Scenario: Create a vSphere CentOS Blueprint for Cloning in Rainpole Using your IaaS architect privileges, you create and publish a basic blueprint for cloning vSphere CentOS machines.
Scenario: Configure the Catalog for Rainpole Architects to Test Blueprints Using your tenant administrator privileges, you create a special catalog service that contains very little governance, where your Rainpole architects can efficiently test their work before exporting blueprints into your production environment. You create a Blueprint Testing service, add the vSphere CentOS blueprint to the service, and entitle your Rainpole architects to all catalog items and any actions associated with the service so your architects can verify their work by provisioning catalog items.
Scenario: Test Your Rainpole CentOS Machine Using the local test user account you created, you request to provision your vSphere CentOS machine. You log in to the provisioned machine and verify that it is working as expected.
Scenario: Design and Test a Blueprint to Provision Software on Machines for Rainpole Using your software architect and IaaS architect privileges, you create a blueprint to deliver a vSphere CentOS machine with MySQL installed. You prepare your provisioned CentOS machine as a base, and create a new machine blueprint that supports Software. You build a Software component to install MySQL on Linux machines, and deliver the machine blueprint and MySQL component as new blueprint. You test your work by provisioning the MySQL machine.
