You can create and use vRealize Automation blueprints to provision machines as registered Docker Container hosts.
For a provisioned machine to be registered as a container host, it must meet the following requirements:
The machine is provisioned by a blueprint that contains Containers-specific custom properties.
The required container-specific custom properties are supplied in two property groups. See Using Container Properties and Property Groups in a Blueprint.
For information about using custom properties and property groups in vRealize Automation, see Custom Properties and the Property Dictionary.
The machine is accessible over the network.
For example, the machine must have a valid IP address and be powered on.
You can define a vRealize Automation blueprint to contain specific custom properties that designate a machine as a container host when provisioned using the blueprint.
When a machine with the required blueprint properties is successfully provisioned, it is registered in the Containers and receives events and actions from vRealize Automation.
