[vRA 7.5] - Import & Manage physical servers

Hi everyone,

we try to find a solution to manage "Physical Servers" from vRealize Automation 7.5.


No more physical machine templates in vRealize Automation 7

In prior versions, vRealize Automation supported the provisioning of physical machines. Most commonly, they were used for legacy reasons or if virtual or cloud provisioning was not possible anymore (there was still support for HP iLO, Dell iDrac and Cisco UCS). In the new version, this is no longer supported anymore.

Do you know if there is a workaround for importing physical servers into vRA ?

Thx for your help.

You won't be able to update properties of CatalogResource objects to store state info (unless a 'hacky' way I've seen with approval policies used in Property Toolkit of Sovlabs).

With custom resources you do whatever you want. Don't make the task more complicated than it is now...
