After deploying VMware Cloud Director Availability, verify that all services are correctly running by logging in to each service management interface and validating the service connectivity status.

Prerequisites

Verify that VMware Cloud Director Availability is successfully deployed and all the services are powered on.

Procedure

  1. Verify that the Cloud Service is operational.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://Appliance-IP-Address/ui/admin.
    2. Select Appliance login or SSO login and enter the root or the single sign-on user credentials.
    3. Click Login.
    4. In the left pane under Monitoring, click System Health.
    5. In the Service status section, verify that all connectivity checks report a green check icon.
  2. (Optional) Verify the Cloud Service network connectivity with the Tunnel Service, with the Manager Service, and with the Replicator Service instances.
    1. In the left pane under Monitoring, click Network Connectivity.
    2. In the network diagram, verify that all connectivity checks report a green check icon.
  3. Verify that the Manager Service is operational.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://Appliance-IP-Address:8441/ui/admin.
    2. Select Appliance login or SSO login and enter the root or the single sign-on user credentials.
    3. Click Login.
    4. In the left pane, click System Health.
    5. In the Service status section, verify that all connectivity checks report a green check icon.
  4. Verify that the Replicator Service instances are operational.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to the management endpoint for your deployment type.
      Deployment type Management Endpoint
      Combined Appliance https://Appliance-IP-Address:8440/ui/admin
      Cloud Replicator Appliance https://Replicator-Appliance-IP-Address/ui/admin
    2. Log in as the root user.
    3. In the left pane, click System Health.
    4. In the Service status section, verify that all connectivity checks report a green check icon.
  5. Verify that the Tunnel Service instances are operational.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to the management endpoint for your deployment type.
      Deployment type Management Endpoint
      Combined Appliance https://Appliance-IP-Address:8442/ui/admin
      Cloud Tunnel Appliance https://Tunnel-Appliance-IP-Address/ui/admin
    2. Log in as the root user.
    3. In the left pane, click System Health.
    4. In the Service status section, verify that all connectivity checks report a green check icon.

Results

As a result, you can successfully authenticate to each management endpoint and validate that each VMware Cloud Director Availability service is operational.

What to do next

To start creating and managing replications, access one of the following interfaces:

  • In the on-premises vSphere Client, authenticate with the single sign-on administrator credentials and access the VMware Cloud Director Availability vSphere Client Plug-In. For more information, see Accessing the VMware Cloud Director Availability vSphere Client Plug-In in the VMware Cloud Director Availability User Guide documentation.
  • Go to the VMware Cloud Director Availability Tenant Portal and log in as the VMware Cloud Director organization administrator.
