IaaS Web server provides the user interface in the vRealize Automation portal for the administration and consumption of IaaS components. IaaS server is a windows server in which we install the IaaS agent which is used for various services & process by vRealize Automation.
The IaaS Web site provides infrastructure administration and service authoring capabilities to the vRealize Automation console. The Web site component communicates with the Model Manager, which provides it with updates from the Distributed Execution Manager (DEM), proxy agents and database. The Model Manager communicates with the database, the DEMs, and the portal Web site. The Model Manager is divided into two separately installable components: the Model Manager Web service and the Model Manager data component.
So let’s see How to Prepare IaaS server for vRealize Automation:
IaaS agent can be downloaded from VMware portal or you can download duing the installation of vRealize Automation.
Below in the image you can see the agent which is already downloaded.
Run the installer to start the installation of agent.
Agent installation wizard will start. click Next to continue.
Read & accept the license agreement & click Next to continue.
Specify the installation directory for the agent installation. click Next to continue.
Here you need to provide vRA appliance address , username & password.
Click on Load to load the SHA1 fingerprint of your vRA appliance.
