Trudging along, installing and configuring vCAC at a customer, and I keep forgetting half of the custom properties that I need to accomplish my mission.
I figured that if I always have to keep in referring to the documentation to get the actual names for various elements, I can't be the only one.
So, I figured I'd post the most frequently used vCAC / vRA Custom Properties during a regular configuration in this post, even if it's for my own use.
|Custom Property||Description / Type|
|VirtualMachine.CDROM.Attach||Boolean - True / False|
|VirtualMachine.Admin.ThinProvision||Boolean - True / False|
|VirtualMachine.NetworkN.ProfileName||Name of the Network Profile from which to assign IP Addresses etc,
where N is the index of the NIC in the zero-based array.
|VirtualMachine.Admin.UseGuestAgent||Boolean - True / False|
|VirtualMachine.DiskN.Size||Size of the Disk in Gigabytes, where N is the
index of the disk in the zero-based array.
|VMware.VirtualCenter.OperatingSystem||The vCenter SDK identifier for Operating Systems.
Check my previous post for most information on this value.
|VMware.VirtualCenter.Folder||The Folder Name (in vCenter) in which to provision VMs.
If this folder does not exist, vCAC will create it.
|Hostname||Set this to "Prompt User" to ensure that the user enters a name for the VM when requesting.|
