You can provision a machine and then pass control to an SCCM task sequence to boot from an ISO image, deploy a Windows operating system, and install the vCloud Automation Center guest agent.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a tenant administrator or business group manager.

Gather the following information from your fabric administrator:

a

The name of the collection containing the task sequence.

b

The fully qualified domain name of the SCCM server on which the collection containing the sequence resides.

c

The site code of the SCCM server.

d

Administrator-level credentials for the SCCM server.

e

(Optional) For SCVMM integrations, the ISO, virtual hard disk, or hardware profile to attach to provisioned machines.

Note

Your fabric administrator might have provided this information in a build profile.

1

Blueprint information settings control who can access a blueprint, how many machines they can provision with it, and how long to archive a machine after the lease period is over.

2

The build information settings determine how a machine is provisioned.

3

Machine resource settings control the resources consumed by a machine provisioned with your blueprint.

4

SCCM provisioning requires custom properties to successfully provision machines with the desired ISO and task sequence.

5

Use blueprint actions and entitlements together to maintain detailed control over provisioned machines.
