Once the instance is running in AWS and all information provided was correct, the Virtual Edge will reach out to the VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator with the activation key, activate and perform the software update if needed (and reboot if upgraded). The typical deployment time is between three to four minutes.


  1. If necessary, login to the VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator.
  2. Go to Monitor > Edges.

    The VeloCloud Edges screen displays (see image below).
