Run the bootstrap script to configure the network on the Service Provider appliance.

Procedure

  1. From the vSphere client, power on the SP1 appliance and open the console window.
  2. Log in using User: desktone Password: password you entered in the previous section.
    Note:

    For greater security, you should specify a custom appliance password when prompted by the bootstrap script.

  3. Begin the bootstrap process by executing the following command:
    sudo /usr/local/desktone/scripts/bootstrap.sh
  4. The bootstrap script prompts you to enter network information for the fields listed in the table below. The values shown are sample values only. After you finish entering the network information, the host reboots. It might take five minutes for the appliance to start after reboot. Because the node is not configured until the reboot completes, disregard any error messages displayed on the console.
  5. After the host reboots, you can login via putty or any other ssh terminal you choose.
  6. Enter information at the prompts as described below.
