You can create endpoints to allow vRealize Automation to communicate with the Hyper-V, XenServer, or Xen pool master environment and discover compute resources, collect data, and provision machines.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Agents.
  2. Enter the fully qualified DNS name of your Hyper-V server, Xen server, or Xen pool master in the Compute resource text box.
    Note:

    For a Xen pool endpoint, you must enter the name of the pool master.

    To avoid duplicate entries in the vRealize Automation compute resource table, specify an address that matches the configured Xen pool master address. For example, if the Xen pool master address uses the host name, enter the host name and not the FQDN. If the Xen pool master address uses FQDN, then enter the FQDN.

  3. Select the proxy agent that your system administrator installed for this endpoint from the Proxy agent name drop-down menu.
  4. (Optional) : Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Click OK.

Results

vRealize Automation collects data from your endpoint and discovers your compute resources.

What to do next

Add the compute resources from your endpoint to a fabric group. See Create a Fabric Group.
