In previous post, i have discussed different vApp deployment use cases.lets see one by one, how to deploy them.in today’s post, i am going to start with first use case which is vApp Network in directly connected to Organization External Network Directly.
In this Lab we will perform following tasks
- Architecture diagram for vApp Use Case 1.
- Deploy vApp Use Case 1: vApp Network (Direct) -> Organization VDC Network (Direct)
1-Architecture diagram for vApp Use Case 1
Following is architecture diagram for vApp Use case 1, which I am going to configure in this post.
2-Deploy vApp Use Case 1: vApp Network (Direct) -> Organization VDC Network (Direct)
To deploy vApp, you should login to your Organization. in my case, i am choosing my Organization HITech for this use case.so login to “HITech Organization” on following vCloud Director Organization URL https://vcloud.vmlab.com/cloud/org/hitech
NOTE: This the same Organization, which i have created/configured in my previous post vCloud Director Foundation- “Organizations Configuration”
From Organization login Screen, provide HITech Organization admin Credentials “hitechadmin/password”
Once login go to my “My Cloud” Tab -> Click on highlighted icon to build a new vApp in HITech Organization.
Click the “Build New vApp” icon from menu
Name your vApp, as per my vApp architecture diagram, i Chooses vApp name “vApp1-vAppDirect-OrgDirect”, Next choose your “Org VDC” according to vApp architecture diagram, where vApp will be deployed and set the vApp leases, Once done-> Click “Next”
NOTE: This the same vDC, which i have created/configured in my previous post vCloud Director Foundation- “Organization vDCs Configuration”
Choose Catalog “Public Catalog”, Select vApp “RHEL-Template” from vApp templates -> Click “Add” Twice. Once done. Click “Next”
NOTE: This the same catalog and vApp template, which i have created/configured in my previous posts “vCloud Director Foundation- “Organization Catalog and User Rights Configuration” and vCloud Director Organizations- “Create vApp Templates” respectivly
Select the Full Name of VMs as per architecture diagram, which are “vApp1-Web1” and “vApp1-Web2” respectively and choose the Storage policy-> Click “Next”
Set the Computer Name of vApp1-Web1 into “vApp1-Web1” and vApp1-Web2 into “vApp1-Web2”.Choose Network “HITech-RND-Org-Direct”-> Click “Next”
NOTE: this is same networks, which i created/configured in my previous post vCloud Director Organizations- “Create Organization vDC Networks”
Wait for a while to deploy the vApp. once done, see the virtual Machine information (IP/Host/Storage/Network) of “vApp1-vAppDirect-OrgDirect”. Click on vApp and choose “virtual Machine” tab as shown below.
