This section describes the VeloCloud Gateway installation procedures.

In general, installing the VCG involves the following steps:

  1. Create VCG on VCO and make a note of the activation key.
  2. Configure VCG on VCO.
  3. Create the cloud-init file.
  4. Create the VM in VMware or KVM.
  5. Boot the VCG VM and ensure the VCG cloud-init initializes properly. At this stage, the VCG should already activate itself against the VCO.
  6. Verify connectivity and disable cloud-init.
Important: VCG supports both the virtual switch and SR-IOV. This guide specifies the SR-IOV as an optional configuration step.
