IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vCloud Automation Center to communicate with the XenServer environment and discover compute resources, collect data, and provision machines.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as an IaaS administrator.

A system administrator must install a proxy agent with stored credentials that correspond to your endpoint. See Installation and Configuration.


Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Agents.


Enter the fully qualified DNS name of your XenServer server in the Compute resource text box.


Select the proxy agent that your system administrator installed for this endpoint from the Proxy agent name drop-down menu.


(Optional) Enter a description in the Description text box.


Click OK.

vCloud Automation Center can now discover your compute resources.

Add the compute resources from your endpoint to a fabric group.

See Create a Fabric Group.
