vRealize Guest Agent WITHOUT Software Components

Jump to solution

I've never used the vRealize Guest Agent before. After reading up on it, it seems it may be a solution to some problems we are trying to address (i.e. running scripts during provisioning without placing files in the template).

We are not licensed for Software Components, however. Will the vRealize Guest Agent still provide us value? Can it be used without Software Components?

Yes, the guest agent can be used without an Enterprise license. I did a three-part blog on use of the guest agent. First part is here:  Adding Machine Requestor to Local Administrators Group in vRA 7
