This post is a part of a series that covers how we install, configure and manage the vRealize Suite using the VMware vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) API.

In this post, we will look at how we can use the vRSLCM API to manage credentials and store them in vRSLCM Locker.

vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager vRSLCM API

I recently worked with a customer to complete a Proof of Concept for the vRealize Suite and how it adds value for both traditional Virtual Machines deployments and also kubernetes deployments (including with VMware Tanzu). In the first session, we immediately hit a challenge because the customer had a non-standard Top Level Domain (TLD) and this meant we could not use the VMware vRealize Easy Installer UI to install vRealize Automation or the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) user interface to install any of the vRealize Suite.

Introduction ICYMI, I will be speaking (virtually) at the UKVMUG on 25th November 2021. I’ll be talking about my one of my favourite topics (no not myself), Certifications! In addition to my day job at VMware and the working with the HOL Team, I have spent the last 18 months was an Education SME for the VMware Education Team. It has been very rewarding but hardwork. During this time I have contributed to 13 different exams (at various levels) across the VMware SDDC technology domain.

The second-half application for VMware vExpert 2021 close soon 9th July 2021. Now I appreciate that there has been a plethora of posts about the benefits of being a vExpert, so I thought I would share my story too :) What Is The vExpert Program? In my opinon, at it’s heart, the VMware vExpert Program is not just about advocacy and envanglism, it’s about community. It brings people together. It encourages those people with diverse backrounds, who live in different countries or continents (that would likely never meet otherwise) to share their own experiences with VMware Technology through the medium of their choice.

Since VMworld 2020 and the announcement of vRealize Cloud Universal subscription licensing, I have been working and speaking with a lot of customers who get confused with different key terms around software licensing. More than any others, the terms Perpetual vs Subscription vs Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) is confusing a lot of people!

In this series of posts, we will be taking a look at how to configure a Multi-Organization Tenancy (aka Multi-Tenancy) in vRealize Automation (vRA) 8.x.

Have you ever wanted to go to VMworld and never had the travel or budget approved? Well, unless you have been in cryogenic stasis for the last 6 months (and if you were, maybe you were better off), then you will know that VMworld 2020 is going to be VERY different this year. It is a single GLOBAL event, on 29th September - 1st October 2020. It is VIRTUAL. It is FREE.
