vCO for PowerAdm
VMware vCenter Orchestrator Interface for PowerAdm
VMWare vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) is an workflow for Logical Partition (LPAR) request and creation using vCenter Orchestrator.
It is easy to install, importing the Action and Workflow (view instalation/configuration steps below).
The Workflow has tree steps:
- LPAR request
- LPAR config (approval)
- Confirm Config (approval)
The request works fine with vCO Web Client, but the approval not (I am investigating why with the VMware Support)
I am also working on NIM Deploy module to vCO. Coming soon.
- Bruno Costa - Some skype conference teaching me how to use the vCO Action and Workflow!
- Raphael Paiva - My another vCO support!
- Fernando Costa - Fixing my bad english!
LPAR Config (approval)
Confirm Config (approval)
