Import existing virtual machines in vCloud Automation Center

Virtual machines from an existing vSphere environment can be imported into vCloud Automation Center to manage them from there. You perform this action as an Infrastructure Administrator with a tool named Infrastructure Organizer that you will find under the Infrastructure tab in your vCAC administration portal.

This tool works like a wizard that guides you through the process of selecting the machines to import and assigning them to Business Groups and Blueprints.

First select the Compute Resource where the machines you want to import are located.
