Installed with VMware Cloud

Several tables, workflows, workflow activities, and MID Server probes are installed with VMware Cloud.

These components are added with VMware Cloud:

Tables

Table 1. VMware Cloud tables
Table Description
cmdb_ci_vm_instance Contains virtual machine instances.
cmdb_ci_vmware_instance Contains VMware instances.
vm_allocatable_ip Contains IP addresses available for a given network.
vm_linux_config Contains specific information used to configure Linux virtual machines.
vm_net_config Contains network configuration information used to configure new virtual machines.
vm_win_config Contains specific information used to configure Windows virtual machines.

Workflow activities

The following workflow activities are installed with the Orchestration - VMware Support plugin. For additional details about these activities, see Orchestration VMware Activities.

Table 2. VMware Cloud workflow activities
Activity Table Description
Change State global Sends commands to vCenter to control the state of a given VMware virtual machine (powers the VM on or off).
Check VM Alive global Uses the VMware API to determine if a newly configured VM is alive. The virtual machine is alive if its state is powered on and if it uses the same IP address with which it was configured.
Clone global Sends commands to vCenter to clone a given VMware virtual machine.
Configure Linux global Sends commands to vCenter to set the identity and network information on a given VMware virtual Linux machine.
Configure Windows global Sends commands to vCenter to set the identity and network information on a given VMware virtual Windows machine.

Workflows

Table 3. VMware Cloud workflows
Name Description
VMware - Provision Main workflow that clones, configures, and then powers on the virtual machine. This workflow uses the VMware - Wait for VM to start subflow, closes the task as complete or incomplete. Requesters receive an email if the provisioning was successful, and the Virtual Provisioning Cloud Operators group receives an email if the provisioning fails.
VMware - Wait for VM to start Subflow that queries the virtual machine using VMware Tools for its state and IP address to determine if it has powered up after its configuration changes.

MID Server Probes

Table 4. VMware Cloud MID Server probes
Name Purpose
VMware - Clone Clones a virtual machine or virtual machine template.
VMware - Change State Powers on or powers off a virtual machine.
VMware - Configure Linux Sets the configuration specification for Linux.
VMware - Configure Windows Sets the configuration specification for Windows.
VMware - Get Guest Info Returns the state and IP address, used to determine if the virtual machine is up after configuration.
