vRA8 - AD Integration

Hi all,

First of all, it may be that this is not a vRA problem. Smiley Happy

The vRA AD integration actually works, which means that the computer object is created in the correct OU.

The problem now is that the object is created 1:1 like the server name (e.g. srv001), but the server is joined as SRV001 and to the default OU when joined via the Customization Specification.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

1. If you want to add VM to specified OU, you can try this:

vRA 7 you used to be able to do some pretty cool stuff out of the box with VM placement into a designated OU using custom properties. Unfortunately, this concept isn't in vRA 8 at this time. I imagine that to place an object in the OU you want, you may need to write and run a vRO workflow to pre-create the object in AD at one of the vRA 8 extensibly lifecycle states (perhaps compute.allocation.pre or compute.provision.pre) and then when your customization spec runs, it will join the domain
