Tenant administrators and business group managers can enable RDP connections on a blueprint so that entitled users can remotely access machines provisioned from that blueprint.

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

Create at least one blueprint.

(Optional) Configure Connections Using RDP.


If you are using Amazon Web Services, RDP, or SSH must be enabled on the Amazon machine instance and the machines must be in a security group in which the correct ports are open.


Select Infrastructure > Blueprints > Blueprints.


Point to the blueprint to change and click Edit.


Click the Actions tab.


Select the Connect using RDP or SSH check box to allow users to connect to their machine by using an RDP or SSH connection.


Click OK.

All users who are entitled to connect using RDP now see the Connect Using RDP option for all machines they request from your blueprint. For information about entitlements, see Tenant Administration.
