The final step in your SCCM task sequence must be to install a software package that includes the vRealize Automation guest agent.


  1. Navigate to the vRealize Automation appliance management console page.

    For example:

  2. Click Guest and software agents page in the vRealize Automation component installation section of the page.

    For example:

    The Guest and Software Agent Installers page opens, displaying links to available downloads.

  3. Click Windows guest agent files (32-bit) or (64-bit) in the component installation section of the page to download and save the GuestAgentInstaller.exe or GuestAgentInstaller_x64.exe file.
  4. Extract the Windows guest agent files to a location available to SCCM.

    This produces the directory C:\VRMGuestAgent. Do not rename this directory.

  5. Create a software package from the definition file SCCMPackageDefinitionFile.sms.
  6. Make the software package available to your distribution point.
  7. Select the contents of the extracted Windows guest agent files as your source files.
