In a distributed deployment, the system administrator installs components on multiple machines in the deployment environment. Distributed Deployment ChecklistA system administrator can deploy vRealize Automation in a distributed configuration, which provides failover protection and high-availability through redundancy. Distributed Installation ComponentsIn a distributed installation, the system administrator deploys virtual appliances and related components to support the deployment environment. Disabling Load Balancer Health ChecksHealth checks ensure that a load balancer sends traffic only to nodes that are working. The load balancer sends a health check at a specified frequency to every node. Nodes that exceed the failure threshold become ineligible for new traffic. Certificate Trust Requirements in a Distributed DeploymentFor secure communication, vRealize Appliance relies on certificates to create the trusted relationships between components. Installation WorksheetsYou can use these worksheets to record important information for reference during the installation process. Deploy Appliances for vRealize AutomationDownload and deploy all appliances for vRealize Automation.
