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.

When you use vRealize Automation to provision Amazon AWS machines with the vRealize Automation guest agent and Software bootstrap agent, you must set up network-to-Amazon VPC connectivity so your provisioned machines can communicate back to vRealize Automation to customize your machines.

For more information about Amazon AWS VPC connectivity options, see the Amazon AWS documentation.
