Start the deployment of vRealize Log Insight in Region A by deploying the master and worker nodes and forming the vRealize Log Insight cluster.

1

Before you deploy vRealize Log Insight, verify that your environment satisfies the requirements for this deployment. 

2

Use the vSphere Web Client to deploy each vRealize Log Insight node as a virtual appliance on the management cluster in Region A.

3

To protect the vRealize Log Insight cluster from a host-level failure, configure vSphere DRS to run the worker virtual appliances on different hosts in the management cluster.

4

Configure and start the vRealize Log Insight master node. Before you form a cluster by adding the worker nodes, vRealize Log Insight must be running.

5

After you deploy the virtual appliances for vRealize Log Insight and start the vRealize Log Insight instance on the master node, join the two worker nodes to form a cluster.

6

After you join the master and the worker nodes to create a vRealize Log Insight cluster, enable the Integrated Load Balancer (ILB) for balancing incoming ingestion traffic of syslog data among the Log Insight nodes and for high availability. 

7

To use user roles in vRealize Log Insight that are maintained centrally and are inline with the other solutions in the SDDC, enable Active Directory support.
