Product name
BlueCat vRO Plug-in

Create at least one profile in order to allow the BlueCat Address Manager vRO Plugin to work with Address Manager. You can create as many profiles as you want.

Note: If you are running Address Manager in replication and a failover has been performed, you must reconfigure the profile with the updated Address Manager IP address or hostname from the vRealize Orchestrator configuration page.

To create a profile:

  1. Log in to the VMware vRealize Orchestrator Client user interface.
  2. Under Library, select Workflows.
  3. Select ... next to the Add a profile workflow and select Run.
  4. Set the following parameters:
    • Profile Name—enter the unique descriptive name for the profile that you are creating.
    • Host—enter the IP address or FQDN of the Address Manager server.
    • User Name—enter an Address Manager API username that vRealize Orchestrator will use to log in to the Address Manager server. This API username must already exist in Address Manager.
      Note: In order to perform IPAM automation using BlueCat Address Manager vRO Plugin, the API user must be granted Full access rights at the IP address and MAC address levels, and Full access rights with the ability to perform a full deployment of data at the server level.
    • Password—enter the API user password for the Address Manager server.
    • Use SSL—select the Yes radio button to connect to the Address Manager server using SSL.
  5. Click Run.
