After you deploy the Cloud Builder virtual appliance, you prepare for an automated deployment of the SDDC components by uploading the software bundle and the generated signed certificates. You then mount the software bundle and configuring application properties.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the VMware Cloud Builder virtual appliance.
    1. Open a connection to lax01cb01.lax01.rainpole.local using an SCP software like WinSCP.
    2. Log in by using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name admin
      Password cloudbuilder_admin_password
  2. Upload the VMware Validated Design software bundle file vvd-bundle-johndory-x.x.x-xxxxxxx.iso to the /mnt/hgfs directory on the Cloud Builder appliance.
  3. Upload all folders and their content from the CertGenVVD folder C:\CertGenVVD-version\SignedByMSCACerts-lax-jd to the /opt/vmware/vvd/certificates directory on the Cloud Builder appliance.
  4. Upload the vra01svr01, vrb01svr01, vrops01svr01, and vrs01lcm01 folders and their content, that you generated during Region A deployment (C:\CertGenVVD-version\SignedByMSCACerts-sfo-jd) , to the /opt/vmware/vvd/certificates directory on the Cloud Builder appliance in Region B.
  5. Configure the Cloud Builder appliance and mount the VMware Validated Design software bundle .iso file.
    1. Open an SSH connection to lax01cb01.lax01.rainpole.local.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name admin
      Password cloudbuilder_admin_password
    3. Switch to the root user by running the su command.
    4. Мount the VMware Validated Design software bundle .iso file and configure application properties by running the following command.
      /opt/vmware/vvd/cloud-builder/install/reconfigure.sh

      The script sets the full system path to each application's installation file, configures specific application properties, and restarts the bring-up service.
