You have to deploy the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager appliance, upload one or more OVA files depending on the use case, and prepare certificates. Deploy the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager ApplianceYou deploy the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager appliance on top of an existing VMware Validated Design for the Software-Defined Data Center deployment. As part of appliance deployment, you specify storage, networking, and other appliance attributes. Upload Product OVAs to vRealize Suite Lifecycle ManagerBefore you can trigger a use case deployment by using vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, you download product OVAs and create mappings between each product and the associated OVA. Certificate ReplacementBefore you deploy use cases with vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, you must specify a certificate authority and generate certificate files for the vRealize Suite management products. In this validated design, you replace the default VMCA-signed (self-signed) certificates of the management products with certificates that are signed by a Certificate Authority (CA).
