    Hello,

     

    I have been trying to run the Attach Baseline workflow. We have have Update Manager plugin 6.0.2 and VRO 7.2. When I expand the baselines, it gives me a message ERROR IN PLUGIN.

     

    I have captured this java error:

     

     

    Is this due to a mismatch in the plugin and the vcenter server? We are using the latest vCenter 6.5 update with the embedded VUM.

     

    Thanks

    I've been try to get the default IaaS host from an action (to populate dynamic forms in a blueprint). the following code simply returns "undefined":

     

    var host = Server.findAllForType("vCAC:VCACHost")[0];

    System.log("found: "+host.displayName);

     

    I sure i'm missing something basic - but i assumed that the IaaS host would be available..

     

    Thanks!

    Hi All,

     

    Is there any way to export and import Subscriptions? I saw that with the Cloud Client you can export and import workflows and properties, but no subscriptions.

     

    I've been able to get the subscriptions from the API but I can't update it or create a new one.

     

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Hello

     

    I am juggling between vrealize automation for our new private cloud and want to know if this would be suitable for billing for cloud customers. In addition am I correct in reading that Linux VMs can have ssh keys injected using the API

    Syntax for Getting a Key Pair List

     

    If using this will our billing system I am more than happy to have a module built but need to know if this would be possible to provide cloud virtual machines while allowing to charge customers for consumed resources.

    I get that VRealize is great for deploying and tracking virtual machines.

     

    I am also in need of an interface that will allow me to manage and manipulate application Metatdata, and I would prefer to have the folks tasked with monitoring the virtual machines and the applications just have to go to one place.

     

    We have a collection of Desktop applications, that read registry settings or ini files, or any other manner of  storage to determine their start up configuration.  These applications were first developed in a time frame spanning from say 1985 to now.  They are still actively being sold, used, and enhanced, there is a desire to host them via RDSH, in such a manner that resources are shared rather than dedicated.  So now the startup configuration cannot be stored on the local machine, we want to point the startup process of the application to a database that will provide the application startup information based on what organization a user belongs to.

     

    The contents of this database is what we want to be able to manage in conjunction with everything else that vRealize does.

     

    I am a newb, in working with vRealize.  I am not new to working the PowerCLI for scripting the deployment of virtual machines, and using PowerShell Desired State Configuration to configure the deployed machines.  I am not new to developing applications that manage and manipulate the MetaData previously discussed.  I am also not new to the development of Powershell, C# or C++ applications to perform custom tasks in the windows environment.

     

    So here is the question.  So that I can just have one place for folks to monitor and manage the environment, how do I extend the vRealize interface to accommodate the interfaces necessary to manage metadata, and possibly custom actions that need to be performed on behalf of the end users.

     

    Thanks

    Hello Team,

    I am using vRA 7.3 for my new solution. We have got a requirement to move the machines across Business Groups. There are two BGs with in a tenant, (migration and Production Support). The provisioning and commissioning of the new VMs will be performed by the migration BG members. After the server is fully ready, the ownership/reservations all need to be transferred to the Production support BG. Once transferred, the users from Migration BG should not be able to access the servers .

     

    Please could you suggest how can we do this  ? Also is there any way for automating the same ?  I have seen couple of articles from third party sites ? Can some one provide some VMware documentation around the same?

    Hi there

     

    My team is using the AWS Default blueprint to provisioning EC2 machines in AWS. VRA v7.3. We want to find out a method of how to limit certain aspects. I'll give you examples:

     

    1. Storage tab - The customer wants us to limit the max size of each storage volume to 100 GB. However, the input field of Storage allows me to type unlimited values. Is there a way to put in limitation using a configuration file or javascript code?

    2. Subnet selection - We have only one subnet created in the VPC. However, in the subnet drop-down we see the one subnet and the default subnet. We don't want to display the default subnet. Is there a way to to limit the drop-down values displayed?

     

    These are just examples of what we want to achieve. Any help will be appreciated.

     

    Thank you.

    Anyone know if it is possible to change the Archive Days (and in turn the Destroy Date) tied to a Deployment and its' Resources (VMs) in vRA 7.3? We were able to do this in 6.2.X (for single VM Blueprints), using the following:

     

    var modelName = 'ManagementModelEntities.svc';

    var vCACEntity = vcacVm.getEntity();

    var updateProperties = {ExpireDays: expireDays};

    var links = {};

    System.getModule("com.vmware.library.vcac").updateVCACEntity(vCACHost.id, modelName, "VirtualMachines", vCACEntity.keyString, updateProperties, links, null);

     

    The code still runs, and the vCAC:VirtualMachine is updated as expected but the changes never show up on the Catalog Resource. I assume that this is because of the deployment element being added. Any ideas?

    I have a blueprint with that includes a software component. The initial provisioning and software component actions (install and configure) fire as expected when first deployed.

     

    When selecting reprovision, the vm deploys without issue but the software component actions (install and configure) never fire.

     

    Similarly, when selecting Destroy, the uninstall action also fails to fire but the VM is powered off and deleted.

     

    Is this the expected behavior or need I configure something else to trigger the software component actions?

     

    TIA!

    I'm doing a simple install of VRA which always fails at 20% , logs are showing same results which is dicussed in vRA 7 : Simple Install fails  . Same results for 7.1 and 7.3 VRA

     

    DNS/NTP all other validations are fine.

    Hi,

     

    We are using vRA for approx. 2 years now.

    During the provisioning process some software components are being installed on Windows-based VMs. We added some new components, which require a reboot to work properly, recently.

     

    Since there are some VMs, which are reprovisioned every day automatically, it is required to perform a reboot BEFORE the VM's state changes to on and the users starts to use the VM.

     

    So what I would like to achieve is the following:

     

    1.) VM is being requested (either by firing a script which executes the reprovisioning or manually by the user)

    2.) Initial provisioning and configuration of the VM

    3.) Installation of software components

    4.) Perform reboot

    5.) Change state to "On" -> user can see the VM in the vRA portal and can start to use it

     

    Do you have any hints for me?

    Does anyone know whether vRA 7.x support Microsoft SQL 2017 or not? Because at this time we can not order old SQL version (SQL 2016) of Microsoft. In the support matrix release in September 2017 shows that vRA 7.x only support upto SQL 2016.

    Thanks.

    Hi all,

     

    I'm trying to automate the vm deployment in a OpenStack public cloud.

    I was able to add OpenStack as an Endpoint and the regions are available in compute resources.

     

    But I cannot create a OpenStack reservation, because there is no network available and I'm not able to finish the blueprint configuration because there is no image to select.

    In the logs I saw the following message, but I'm not sure if this is the reason for my problem.
