In case, you do not have internet connectivity or have a complete isolated deployment host, use the DarkSite deployment procedure for the VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance installation.


  • Ensure that you have a jump host that has internet connectivity.
  • Verify that you have a jump host with the Docker installed and running.


  1. Download VMware Telco Cloud Service Assurance files and pull the Deployment Container to your jump host.
  2. Push the Deployment Container to local registry, or pack the Deployment Container to .tar and then transfer to a deployment host.
    # Option A: If you are hosting local registry
    $ docker pull<VERSON>-<BUILD_ID>
    $ docker tag<VERSON>-<BUILD_ID> <local-registry>/deployment:<VERSON><BUILD_ID>
    $ docker push <local-registry>/deployment:<VERSON><BUILD_ID>
    # Option B:
    # Save deployment image to a tar archive on jump host
    $ docker save -o <dir/on/jumphost>/deployment.tar<VERSON><BUILD_ID>
    # Transfer to net deployment host and reload it
    $ docker load -i <dir/on/darksite>/deployment.tar
