You download the Dukes Bank for vSphere application from your vRealize Automation appliance. You import the sample application into your vRealize Automation tenant to view a working sample of a multi-tiered vRealize Automation blueprint that includes multiple machine components with networking and software components.

Procedure

  1. Log in to your vRealize Automation appliance as root by using SSH.
  2. Download the Dukes Bank for vSphere sample application from your vRealize Automation appliance to /tmp.
    wget --no-check-certificate  https://vRealize_VA_Hostname_fqdn:5480/blueprints/DukesBankAppForvSphere.zip

    Do not unzip the package.

  3. Download Cloud Client version 4.x from http://developercenter.vmware.com/tool/cloudclient to /tmp.
  4. Unzip the cloudclient-4x-dist.zip package.
  5. Run Cloud Client under the /bin directory.
    $>./bin/cloudclient.sh
  6. If prompted, accept the license agreement.
  7. Using Cloud Client, log in to the vRealize Automation appliance as a user with software architect and infrastructure architect privileges.
    CloudClient>vra login userpass --server https://vRealize_VA_Hostname_fqdn --user <user@domain.com> --tenant <TenantName>
  8. When prompted, enter your login password.
  9. Validate that the DukesBankAppForvSphere.zip content is available.
    vra content import --path /<Path>/DukesBankAppForvSphere.zip --dry-run true --resolution overwrite

    By configuring the resolution to overwrite instead of skip, you allow vRealize Automation to correct conflicts when possible.

  10. Import the Dukes Bank sample application.
    vra content import --path /<Path>/DukesBankAppForvSphere.zip --dry-run false --resolution overwrite

Results

When you log on to the vRealize Automation console as a user with software architect and infrastructure architect privileges, you see Dukes Bank blueprints and software components on the Design > Blueprints tab and the Design > Software Components tab.
