You start the reconfigure operation by selecting a provisioned machine with an On or Off status.

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

The blueprint must have allowed reconfigure when you requested the new machine. For more information about allowing reconfigure from the blueprint, see IaaS Configuration for Virtual Platforms.

The machine you want to reconfigure must have the status On or Off with no active reconfigure status.

Verify that your user account or business group has the Edit (Machine), Cancel Reconfigure (Machine), and Execute Reconfigure (Machine) entitled actions so that you can reconfigure virtual machines. For information about entitlements, see Creating an Entitlement.


Select Items > Machines.


Locate the machine to reconfigure.


Click Edit in the drop-down menu.
