vRealize Automation 8.4 brings some enhancements to storage management at cloud template level. Since this a topic that I am particularly interested in, I've decided to take a look at the topic. I've focused on two cases cases:
- cloud template with predefined number of disks
- cloud template with dynamic number of disks
First I've created a template with 2 additional disks attached to it. Both disk are attached to SCSI controller 1 and their size is given as input. Both disk are thin provisioned. The template looks as following:
Let's see the code behind the template. There are 2 main sections:
- inputs: where the input parameters are defined
- resources: where template resources are defined.
