By default, all of Turbonomic's recommended actions on the Assure Service Performance screen and the Improve Overall Efficiency screen are in a “Recommend mode” except for Moves which are in a “Manual Mode”. 


Before Automating Placement Actions, ensure that all Placement Policies are as designed. These can be checked under Settings > Placement Policies. Turbonomic imports any affinity and anti-affinity rules from the hypervisor. Any additional policies can also be created in Turbonomic. See link for instructions: How to Create Workload Placement Policies (5.4.+)  


To automate a specific Cluster follow instructions below: 


1.) Go to Search and select Groups


2.) Search and select the VM Cluster that you will enable automation on.

Note: you must select a group at the virtual machine level, which can be identified by the groupname starting with VMs_


3.) Select Automation and switch on Moves and select Automated.


4.) Click Apply Now
