  1. I wonder how to adopt day2 “Reconfigure” operation to leverage t-shirt sizes ? Just to avoid customers changing VM size to something meaningless.


    1. Hello Dmitry,
      I never did T-Shirt sizes for the day 2 operations using reconfiguration method. Usually, most of my customers request us to have day 2 operations as XaaS catalog items witihin vRO workflow in the back. In that sense, you can apply t-shirt sizes on it as “input” with pre-defined size.
      Maybe not the answer you look for, but I have never did it what you asked.

      PS: Usually reconfigure button is not much used, because it requires user knowledge on the product, hence the XaaS is more commonly seen.

      Hope to have helped.

      Regards Jose
