I’ve been doing blogging seems like forever, as some know. VMware products all start with a “v”. Had to join the party, so I bought http://vsteve.me which redirects to my VMware category.
Names of scripts
I support VMware vRealize Automation in my current role. When installing the product, it has gotten vastly better than previous versions. The helper script were written for version 6 (known as vCAC). One of the scripts was published by Brian Graf, and is great for machines hosting the IaaS web roles, manager service. I added a second script for DEM worker role machines. My implementation uses an Enterprise HA install. I have four windows servers (two for IaaS web and manager service roles, two for DEM / Agent).
I’ve use the scripts to help speed the install wizard. vRA 7.2 has a “Run / Fix” for pre-req’s on windows machines. When I setup my IaaS windows machines, I’ll also run the helper scripts beforehand. (And take a snapshot). When going through the install wizard, the pre-req checker step goes faster. Here is the screen I’m talking about. I’ve done Medium Enterprise and Minimal installs.

Thanks Brian Graf for publishing the original script.
