Server and Account Settings:

Fill in your vRealize Automation service account information (in my case, I am using my service account “iaas-srv”), a “passphrase” (take note of this, as you are unable to reinstall anything later without it).

Enter the “SQL server FQDN” and a new “database name” that is be created. Keep the Use “Windows Authentication”. Because, I am using my service account “iaas-srv” as windows login for IaaS components installation –> Click “Next”

NOTE: In Express Edition Use Server name (FQDN/Express).


Distributed Executions Managers and Proxy vSphere Agent:

I have changed the endpoint name into”vc01”, Ofcourse you can leave it as default. (This endpoint, I will used later in vRealize Endpoint configuration) and leave the reset of settings as default -> click “Next”.

NOTE: you should remember the endpoint name which you defined in that Wizard configuration. Because endpoint name must be the same as you defined here, when you do your End point configuration later in vRealize Endpoint configuration.


Component Registry:

Click on “Load” to load the default “vsphere.local” tenant. Click on “Download” to pull in the vRealize Automation certificate. Select “Accept Certificate”. Enter the “administrator@vsphere.local” account information for the SSO Administrator Credentials. Verify that the “IaaS Server” is set as your “local FQDN” and click “Next”.


Click “Install”.


Now installation has been started. It took 5-10 minutes to complete depend upon the environment.
