New in vRealize Automation 7 you now have the ability to drop software components onto your Blueprints in the new blueprint design tool. In this guide I will show you how to create a Linux template with the vRealize Automation Agent installed and configured. We will then make this template available in vRA and create and run a simple test Software component.
- vRA7 Installed and configured
- A working Linux Blueprint in vRA that can be successfully deployed via clone or Linked Clone using vCenter Guest customization
- Network access from the Base VM to the vRA appliance.
- A vRA reservation with a port group that will allow the provisioned VM’s to reach the vRA appliance.
yum install wget -y
Now type the following to get the agent install script. Note: You will need wget installed and you will need to enter the url for your vRA Linux Appliance.
