  1. I’m looking for a product that will automatically adjust vmware guest configuration based on analytic data. so, for example, if the data shows a guest runs regularly high memory utilization for a period of 30 days, it verifies that available resources then does the dynamic upgrade.

    Does such a solution exist?

  2. I would suggest you start by looking at vRealize Operations. I believe it is possible to run Orchestrator actions based on specified conditions being triggered.

  3. Hi Jonathan, I am trying to integrate AVAMAR with VMware vRA/vRO, using Rest API

    I have followed your another article:

    http://www.jonathanmedd.net/2015/05/working-with-the-vrealize-automation-rest-api-via-vrealize-orchestrator.html

    After following all steps I was able to do login on AVAMAR and I would like to continue creating workflows , but to do that I need to use a TOKEN created on the login session. Could you give a help how to do that?

    This article shows all options I can do from AVAMAR command line script

    I would like to do the same using VMware vRO.
    Thank you very much

  4. @Eduardo, Just saw this comment – not sure if you’ve figured out what you need regarding using the Avamar REST API with vRO. If not, I can probably help you with that.

    Send an email to me using my name separated with a dot (tom.hudgins) using a domain of dell (followed by dot com).

  5. Hello, I’m pretty new to vRO. In your post “Working with the vRealize Automation REST API via vRealize Orchestrator”, during the section you walk through setting up Get Tenant Groups, you mention ” Create inputs for username, password and tenant – for future use outside of this example, you might want to think about storing these as vRO Configuration Items instead.”

    Can you share how one would configure this and call the elements in a workflow please? In my attempt, I created a configuration element ‘vraCredentials’ with username, password, and tenant as its attributes. This did not succeed for me.

    Thank you in advance for any insight you can provide! Thanks!
