If you do not have direct internet access, you can use a proxy server to download bundles. VMware Cloud Foundation only supports proxy servers that do not require authentication.


  1. Log in to SDDC Manager by using a Secure Shell (SSH) client.

    Use the user name vcf and password you specified in the deployment parameter workbook.

  2. Enter su to switch to the root user and enter the password.
  3. Open the /opt/vmware/vcf/lcm/lcm-app/conf/application-prod.properties file.
  4. Update the following lines to the end of the file, and save and close the file.
    lcm.depot.adapter.proxyHost=proxy IP address
    lcm.depot.adapter.proxyPort=proxy port
  5. Restart the LCM service by typing the following command in the console window.
    systemctl restart lcm
  6. Wait for 5 minutes and then download the bundles. See Download an Install Bundle from SDDC Manager.
