Connecting vRealize Automation Gugent in a Distributed deployment – some notes

Configuring a distributed vCAC 6.x or vRealize Automation 6.2 installation, ran into a few issues and thought I’d document them.

  • The Gugent points to the vCAC IaaS Manager Service, not the vCAC Web/Model Manager
  • Test by browsing to https://[vcacmanager]/VMPS
  • If you are using vCNS or NSX as your load balancer, use these settings for the virtual address (these worked for me):
    • Application Profile: TCP, no persistence
    • Pool: IP-HASH algorithm, Monitor: NONE. ¬†One enabled member, port 443, not transparent
    • Virtual Server: TCP 443, Pool and App Profile from above
  • Confirm the Gugent is working properly before configuring a template for Application Services
