vRA 8 iteration not working properly?

Jump to solution

Hey all,

 

Given the cloud template YAML below, I thought I would be able to iterate over each of the virtual machines that get added and specify different CPUcount and memoryMB for each VM. In reality, it if request 3 virtual machines, then 3 do get deployed and each works fine, however, they all take the same CPU and memory specification. Disks, work fine (since the fix released last year). I believe this could be a problem with the actual product but wondered if anyone else had managed to get this working at all? BTW, I am running vRA8.6 fully patched and up to date.
