vRA custom VM naming convention in AWS

Hi,

I am going to integrate my vRA with AWS, Is it possible I can use event subscription for VM naming convention while deploy VM in AWS, if not what is the other solution to achieve this.? If you have any document or workflow, please share it.

Thanks,

Srini

Are you looking to set the hostname of an EC2 instance, or a value for the tag 'name'?

I'm not sure about renaming the EC2 instances since that is not something that I've looked into but you could always add a tag or create a DNS record internally that points to the public DNS of the instance so that it will resolve internally similar to a servername.

There are a number of ways to change EC2 hostnames

  • Software components to run a rename script
  • Use AWS API for the creation of the instance and utilize 'user data'
  • Cloud formation templates
  • Configuration manager could set the hostname
