You can have an already deployed vSphere Replication Cloud Service appliance or you can deploy it as part of the automated installation process.
Update the property values according to your environment.
You provide the registry name of vCloud Director for which the vSphere Replication Cloud Service appliance is configured as the vcd property name.
You specify the number of Cassandra servers to be used as the cassandra-replication-factor property name.
You provide the corresponding registry name of the RabbitMQ endpoint to which the vCloud Director host connects as the amqp property name.
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.

The placement-address property name is optional. Provide it if you use static network addresses.
The ovf-url property name is optional. Provide it if you want to specify a custom location for the OVA deployment.
