Interesting Problem - Provisioning EC2 machines using XAAS in VRO

Hi All,

We're using XAAS to provision EC2 machines in AWS Cloud. The machine is getting provisioned corrected but we're not able to register this machine in to VRA catalog because the type of machine is returned back as EC2Instance. However, VMWare expects the instance type should be VCAC.

We're unable to find a method to convert EC2Instance to VCAC? Is there a way to do that?

I don't know of any way... you might be able to hack it somehow.  But before going that path - why are you doing it through vRO vs. thru vRA?  Are you needing to set some info on the request that vRA will not support?  If you need to use vRO to submit the request, can you have it automate vRA instead (i.e. use vRO to submit vRA catalog request)?

If you need to submit certain information with the instance request that isn't supported by vRA, then it sounds like you're going to have to hack it one way or another.

We cannot use VRA because the built-in AWS blueprint doesn't support placement groups and selection of EBS volumes, both of which are critical requirements. As a result, we needed to build from scratch an XAAS blueprint, where we are now facing the EC2Instance to VCAC issue.

Hope this helps.

Hi jasnyder,

I have a XaaS form in vRA 7.3 which provisions a windows VM on AWS.

Now I am trying to use the same code XaaS form is vRA 7.4 and provisioning is not happening. It's giving "No reservation available for the Business Group".

Can you help me with the same
