  22. 22. vRealize Automation – Virtual Appliance High Availability and Cluster Information • Designed for distributed environments – Improves manual work when multiple vRealize Automation virtual appliances need to be deployed behind a load balancer • Manages the following: – Copying files from one VA to another and changing security on files – Manually disabling services and editing configuration files 22
  23. 23. vRealize Automation Virtual Appliance – High Availability Nodes List • Lists all registered vRealize Automation nodes that make up the service – If you have a DEM running that is registered, it will show up as IAAS even though it only has that small piece installed on it – Does not differentiate which types of IaaS services are installed on nodes listed with a type of IAAS 23
  24. 24. vRealize Automation Virtual Appliance – Host Settings • Certificate page is removed and consolidated into the host settings – View the current certificate, generate a new self-signed certificate, and import a certificate from a PEM – If you do not enter anything into the common name field when generating a certificate, vRealize Automation will create the certificate using the machine name automatically. 24 • New checks that will occur: – Load balancer certificate matches the local machine certificate – Certificate chain verification – Certificate revocation list can be accessed • If it does not, a message appears and the vRealize Automation service will not be able to start
