Microsoft Azure 5 minutes
My latest lab excapades required deploying some VMs into Azure using vRealize Automation. Before I did that though, I wanted to configure private network access between my Azure VNet and my lab network to support things like Domain Joining, Lab DNS lookups, SaltStack Config management, etc. My lab network is managed by a virtual PFSense appliance so this post will cover PFSense configuration too. The IPSec tunnel only needs to exist while I’m deploying and testing things.
VMware vRealize Automation 2 minutes
I had a customer recently ask me what vRealize Automation (vRA) 8.1 was able to manage in the public cloud when using blueprints. While I had a very good idea as I’ve got it running in my homelab, I didn’t have any online reference list that I could direct them to. There just isn’t a simple list of it all for a customer to peruse before they have deployed it.
