To begin installing the components of vCloud Availability, you must first install and configure the vCloud Availability Installer Appliance.

The vCloud Availability Installer Appliance is deployed as an OVA file and includes the following components:

  • vCloud Availability scripts for installation and maintenance operations

  • SLES 12 SP3 image to provide a Docker container hosting

Installation and configuration procedures contain long commands with multiple arguments which you must run as single commands. For better visibility line breaks are marked with backslash (\) within a command. The beginning of a new command is marked with the number sign (#).
