vRA-Lab-11-Create a Business Group

Tenant administrators create business groups to associate a set of services and resources to a set of users, often corresponding to a line of business, department, or other organizational unit. Users must belong to a business group to request machines.

Prerequisites

Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a “Tenants administrator”. In my case, I have created one already in my Active Directory with name “vmexpo-tadmin@vmexpo.local” and gave permission to configure tenants during “create new tenants” process. Enter the “credentials” and click “Login”
