Hi, I'm trying to eval Aria Automation for automated VM deployments. I've installed the vRealize Aria Automation Config, but it doesn't look like what I was expecting.
So... what do I need to install for this? There's Orchestrator, vRA, vRA+Config, etc. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks, a course will probably be something in the near future. But for now, I'm just looking for what pieces are required for doing a VM deployment workflow. Is just vRA required, or are there other pieces that are required for doing something like this?
I'm assuming you have a vCenter and ESX hosts already available to consume. If so you need to download the easy installer https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Aria-Automation/8.12/installing-automation-easy-installer/GUID-CEF... . This will install LCM, Identity Manager, and vRA which includes vRO. You'll have everything you need to create the deployment workflows but as has been mentioned getting all of this online is not trivial.
Thanks, yes we have the LCM, IDM and vRA installed, however the only vRA version available was the "config" version, which is basically the SaltStack piece. The regular vRA isn't available for eval.
