To ensure a successful deployment of the VMware Cloud Director appliance, you must perform some tasks and pre-checks before starting the deployment.
- Verify that you have access to the VMware Cloud Director .ova file.
- Before you deploy the primary appliance, prepare an NFS shared transfer service storage. See Preparing the Transfer Server Storage for VMware Cloud Director on Linux.
Note: The shared transfer service storage must contain neither a responses.properties file nor an appliance-nodes directory.
- Install and Configure a RabbitMQ AMQP Broker.
