Using your configuration administrator privileges, you request a catalog item to quickly populate your Rainpole environment and evaluate a proof of concept vRealize Automation deployment.
About this task
During your vRealize Automation installation, you selected to create a configuration administrator and catalog items to deploy your initial content. Now you want to log in to the vRealize Automation console as the configuration administrator user, configurationadmin, and request the initial content catalog items. The vSphere initial setup catalog item creates required vRealize Automation elements for you and publishes templates from your vSphere environment as vRealize Automation catalog items that you can request.
Create a vSphere virtual machine template and customization specification. See Scenario: Prepare vSphere Resources for Machine Provisioning in Rainpole.
