VMware Integrated OpenStack with Kubernetes is a vApp that you deploy using a wizard in the vSphere Web Client.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that vSphere is installed and correctly configured. See System Requirements.

  • Obtain the VMware Integrated OpenStack with Kubernetes OVA from VMware.

  3. Go to the vCenter Hosts and Cluster view.
  4. Right click the cluster where you want to deploy VMware Integrated OpenStack with Kubernetes and select Deploy OVF Template.
  5. Access the downloaded VMware Integrated OpenStack with Kubernetes OVA.
  6. Specify the destination and configure the OVA deployment.
    1. Select the target datacenter created specifically for the VMware Integrated OpenStack with Kubernetes OVA, and click Next.
    2. Select a target host, cluster, resource pool, or vApp and click Next.
