You can define new values for all the node properties such as host name or vCPU. You can define new values only for application component and service properties that have the Overridable at Deployment check box selected in the application blueprint.

For successful deployment, assign a value to the required node properties from the catalog, blueprint, or deployment profile. The system defines node properties, such as memory allocation and number of CPUs, but you can override them. For example, the vFabric tc Server service might have a JVM heap size of 512MB. But for a large deployment, you can override that setting and change the size to 1024MB.

You can set a host name so that the virtual machine can be easily identified in the vCloud Director or vCloud Automation Center deployments. To generate unique characters you can append the ${random} expression at the end of a host name.

The cluster size of a clustered node can also be defined with new values.

Verify that your user account has the ROLE_DEPLOYER deployer role assigned to it.

Verify that at least one application is created in vCloud Application Director. See Creating Applications.

Verify that the Deployment Environment tab is configured. See Configure the Deployment Environment Tab.


Verify that the properties you set in the blueprint appear accurately in the component tabs.


(Optional) Click the Service, Application Component, or Node tab.


Select a specific service, application component, or node property.


In the table, click the New Value column of a specific row and type the value to use in the deployment profile.

For a deployment to Amazon EC2, you must change the global_conf property value to https://DarwinServerIP:8443/darwin/conf/darwin_global_noproxy.conf.


To revert to the original value, click the Reset Value button (Reset the component value).


(Optional) In the Disk Mappings section, type a new integer value to increase or decrease the disk size.


When you finish making changes, click Next.

The Execution Plan tab appears.

Review the provisioning tasks and dependencies in the execution plan. See Review the Execution Plan and Add Custom Tasks.
