You can have an already deployed vCloud Availability for vCloud Director Portal host or you can deploy it as part of the automated installation process.

Important:

Update the property values according to your environment.

You provide the registry name of vCloud Director for which the vCloud Availability for vCloud Director Portal host is configured as the vcd property name.

The https-certificate property value is optional. If you provide it, you must also set the set https-certificate property value. If you do not provide it, a self-signed certificate is created.

If you already set either the ssh-password or the ntp-address as global properties at the beginning of the registry file, you do not need to specify them in the registry entry.
