Load Balancer Requirements

Network Requirements

vRealize Automation requires:
  • Single, static IPv4 and Network Address
  • Reachable DNS server set manually
  • Valid, Fully qualified domain name, set manually that can be resolved both forward and in reverse through the DNS server
Note: IP address change or hostname change after installation is not supported and results in a broken setup that is not recoverable.

Ports and Protocols Requirements

vRealize Automation is accessed over port 443. The 443 port is secured with a self-signed certificate that is generated during the installation. When using an external load balancer, it must be set up to balance on port 443. The table provides an overview of the Ports and Port number used for vRealize Automation. For more information on Ports and Protocols for vRealize Automation where you can view port information of various VMware products in a single dashboard and also export an offline copy of the selected data, see VMware Ports and Protocols.
