A system administrator can optionally identify the HP Server Automation policies to make available in vRealize Automation. Machine requestors can select from among these policies to install software on the requested machine, or HP Server Automation policies can be specified in the blueprint to be applied to every machine that is provisioned from that blueprint.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Create a text file named Software.txt in the Web site directory under the vRealize Automation server install directory, typically %SystemDrive%\Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Server\Website.

    Each line of the Software.txt file must be in the following format:

    Software_policy_description=software_policy_name
  2. Define the label and name of the software policy that a user sees when they request to install software from the HP Server Automation instance.
    1. Replace Software_policy_description with the label that identifies the software policy.
    2. Replace software_policy_name with the name of the policy.

    For example, a Software.txt file, where you want to provide the user the ability to select HP Server Automation Windows ISM Tool, HP Server Automation Linux ISM Tool, or both, might contain the following information:

    HP SA Windows ISM Tool=Windows_ISMtool
    HP SA Linux ISM Tool=RedHatLinux_ISMtool
