    This Custom Task takes an APIC End Point Group as input and generates a VMware DVPortgroup.

     

    This is to be used when you want to allow users to move existing VM's from the traditional network to ACI.

     

    The sample workflow included asks the user for APIC Tenant and then lists all Application Profiles under this Tenant; once the Application Profile is selected it lists all EPG's under this Application Profile.  Once the EPG is selected the workflow converts the EPG into a Port Group and moves the selected VM to this Port Group.

     

    The workflow DOES NOT modify the IP address of the VM.  All it does is move the "Network adapter 1" of the VM to the selected EPG.
