IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vCloud Automation Center to communicate with the Hyper-V 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 Hyper-V 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.
