This section describes the SD-WAN Gateway installation procedures.

In general, installing the SD-WAN Gateway involves the following steps:

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