The system administrator installs the Model Manager Website component to provide access to infrastructure capabilities in the vCloud Automation Center Web console.

Create the IaaS Database Using the Installation Wizard.

Verify that your environment meets the requirements described in IaaS (Windows Server) Requirements.

If you previously installed other components in this environment, verify that you know the passphrase that was created. See Security Passphrase.

If you are using components in your environment, verify that your load balancer meets the configuration requirements.

You must disable the Microsoft loopback check on the installation machine if you are using a load balancer.

See this Microsoft KB article for information about how to disable the loopback check feature. If you follow the first method described in this article, and use multiple load balancers or load balance layers, be sure to specify the host name for each load balancer or layer. The installation fails otherwise.


Right-click the setup file that you downloaded and select Run as administrator.


Click Next.


Accept the license agreement and click Next.


Type the administrator credentials for the vCloud Automation Center Appliance on the Log In page and click Next.

The user name is root and the password is the password that you specified when you deployed the vCloud Automation Center Appliance.


Click Next.


Select Custom Install on the Installation Type page.


Select IaaS Server on the Installation Type page.


Accept the root install location or click Change and select an installation path.


Click Next.


Select Website and ModelManagerData on the IaaS Server Custom Install page.


Select a Web site from available Web sites or accept the default Web site on the Administration & Model Manager Web Site tab.


Type an available port number in the Port number text box, or accept the default port 443.


Click Test Binding to confirm that the port number is available for use.


Select the certificate for this component.


If you imported a certificate after you began the installation, click Refresh to update the list.


Select the certificate to use from Available certificates.


If you imported a certificate that does not have a friendly name and it does not appear in the list, deselect Display certificates using friendly names and click Refresh.

If you are installing in an environment that does not use load balancers, you can select Generate a Self-Signed Certificate instead of selecting a certificate. If you are installing additional Web site components behind a load balancer, do not generate self-signed certificates. Import the certificate from the main IaaS Web server to ensure that you use the same certificate on all servers behind the load balancer.


(Optional) Click View selected certificate, view the certificate, and click OK to close the information window.


(Optional) Select Suppress certificate mismatch to suppress certificate errors. The installation ignores certificate name mismatch errors as well as any remote certificate-revocation list match errors.

This is a less secure option.
