This topic describes how to minimally configure VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs (TAS for VMs) for evaluation or testing purposes. It does not include optional configurations such as external databases or external file storage.
For production deployments, VMware recommends following the procedure in Configuring TAS for VMs.
Before you begin this procedure, ensure that you have successfully completed the steps to prepare your environment for Ops Manager and install and configure the BOSH Director.
To add TAS for VMs to Ops Manager:
If you have not already downloaded TAS for VMs, log in to VMware Tanzu Network and click VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs.
From the Releases drop-down menu, select the release to install and choose one of the following:
.pivotalfile. For more information, see Getting Started with Small Footprint TAS for VMs.
Go to the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard.
Click Import a Product to add your tile to Ops Manager. For more information, see Adding and Deleting Products.
Click the TAS for VMs tile.
To install TAS for VMs with minimal configuration:
Follow the procedure in Assign AZs and Networks in Configuring TAS for VMs.
Follow the procedure in Configure Domains in Configuring TAS for VMs.
Under Certificates and private keys for the Gorouter, you must provide at least one certificate and private key name and certificate key pair for the Gorouter. The Gorouter is enabled to receive TLS communication by default. You can configure multiple certificates for the Gorouter.
Note: When providing custom certificates, enter them in this order:
CA. For more information, see Creating a .pem File for SSL Certificate Installations in the DigiCert documentation.
Note: If you configured Ops Manager Front End without a certificate, you can use this new certificate to complete your Ops Manager configuration. To configure your Ops Manager Front End certificate, see Configure Front End in Preparing to Deploy Ops Manager on GCP.
Note: Ensure that you add any certificates that you generate in this pane to your infrastructure load balancer.
Deactivate the HAProxy forwards all requests to the Gorouter over TLS check box. By default, TAS for VMs does not deploy HAProxy.
Setting appropriate ASGs is critical for a secure deployment. To acknowledge that you are responsible for setting the appropriate ASGs after the TAS for VMs deployment completes:
Under SAML service provider credentials, enter a certificate and private key for the User Account and Authentication (UAA) server to use as a SAML service provider for signing outgoing SAML authentication requests. You can provide an existing certificate and private key from your trusted CA or generate a self-signed certificate. The domain
*.login.SYSTEM-DOMAIN must be associated with the certificate, where
SYSTEM-DOMAIN is the system domain you configured in the Domains pane.
Note: The Single Sign-On for VMware Tanzu service and Spring Cloud Services for VMware Tanzu tiles require the
If the private key specified under SAML service provider credentials is password-protected, enter the password under SAML service provider key password.
Under Internal encryption provider keys, specify one or more keys to use for encrypting and decrypting the values stored in the CredHub database:
Go to the Internal MySQL pane.
In the Email address field, enter the email address where the MySQL service sends alerts when the cluster experiences a replication issue or when a node is not allowed to auto-rejoin the cluster.
Select Resource Config.
In the Resource Config pane, you must associate load balancers with the VMs in your deployment to enable traffic. For more information, see Configure Load Balancing for TAS for VMs.
To complete the TAS for VMs installation:
Click the Installation Dashboard link to return to the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard.
Click Review Pending Changes, then Apply Changes.
