VMware VRA/O

This sub page is dedicated to VMware vRealize Automation, generally installation, configuration and other fun day 2 ops I will find later. The topics are mostly done in the order I completed them in from installation and prerequisites at the top and then downwards with subsequent topics. It is worth mentioning that this is a work in progress, so there will be frequent updates and added information to these sections below. Since originally writing this page and doing some steps I also decided to have a stand alone vRO instance, It allows me to see differences between full blown vRA and vRO.
