Before installing vCenter Server, the Platform Services Controller endpoints must be updated to reflect the name of the load balancer's virtual IP.

Prerequisites

Before completing this procedure, a DNS A record must be created. This A record is the FQDN of the load balancer with the IP address of lax01m01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local. After the load balancer is set up, this DNS record is changed to the virtual IP of the load balancer.

Procedure

  1. Create a DNS record for the load balancer FQDN.
    1. Open a remote desktop connection to your DNS server.
    2. Create a DNS A record with the following values:
      FQDN IP
      lax01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local 172.17.11.61
      Note: After the load balancer is configured, the IP address is updated to reflect the load balancer's VIP instead of the IP address of lax01m01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local
  2. Update the Platform Services Controller SSO configuration on lax01m01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local.
    1. Open an SSH connection to lax01m01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name root
      Password mgmtpsc_root_password
    3. Enter cd /usr/lib/vmware-sso/bin/ and press Enter.
    4. Run python updateSSOConfig.py --lb-fqdn=lax01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local.
  3. Update the Platform Services Controller SSO configuration on lax01w01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local.
    1. Open an SSH connection to lax01w01psc01.lax01.rainpole.local.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name root
      Password comppsc_root_password
