You must create a registry entry for each management or resource vSphere host in your environment and update the values according to your environment.
The following list contains all vSphere properties that the registry file supports and the required structure:
vsphere vsphere-name address vsphere-address api-port 443 api-user admin-user api-password admin-user-password api-thumbprint api-thumbprint-value placement-locator mgmt-locator placement-datastore mgmt-datastore placement-network mgmt-network placement-folder mgmt-folder network-profile-name network-name network-gateway network-gateway-IP-address network-netmask network-netmask network-dns DNS-server1-IP, DNS-server1-IP network-subnet network-subnet-IP-address
In the current example, you create three registry entries: one for the management vSphere host and two for the resource vSphere hosts. The following example contains only the mandatory vSphere properties. If necessary, you can add more.
vsphere mgmt-vsphere-name address mgmt-vsphere-address api-port 443 api-user admin-user api-password admin-user-password placement-locator mgmt-locator placement-datastore mgmt-datastore placement-network mgmt-network vsphere vsphere-01-name address vsphere-01-address api-port 443 api-user vsphere-01-admin-user api-password vsphere-01-admin-password placement-locator vsphere-01-locator placement-datastore vsphere-01-datastore placement-network vsphere-01-network vsphere vsphere-02-name address vsphere-02-address api-port 443 api-user vsphere-02-admin-user api-password admin-user-password placement-locator vsphere-02-locator placement-datastore vsphere-02-datastore placement-network vsphere-02-network
To enable a static IP addresses deployment, make sure that you have a vSphere network pool created. You can create it in the following ways:
Set the network profile properties in the corresponding registry entry and the vCloud Availability Installer Appliance creates and configures the IP pools.
Set the network-profile-name, network-gateway, network-netmask, network-dns, and optionally network-subnet property values.
Create an IP pool in the vSphere Web Client. For more information about creating an IP pool, see the VMware NSX for vSphere documentation.
