If you want vRealize Automation users to log in to a URL name other than the vRealize Automation appliance or load balancer name, take customization steps before and after installation.


  1. Before installing, prepare a certificate that includes the CNAME that you want, as well as vRealize Automation appliance and load balancer names.
  2. Install vRealize Automation, entering the appliance or load balancer name as usual. During installation, import the customized certificate.
  3. After installing, in DNS, create a CNAME alias of Common Name, and point it to the appliance or load balancer VIP address.
  4. Log in to the vRealize Automation appliance administrator interface as root.


  5. Under vRA Settings > Host Settings, change the Host Name to the CNAME that you chose.
