The system administrator installs the IaaS components after the appliances are deployed and fully configured. The IaaS components provide access to vCloud Automation Center Infrastructure features.

Configure the Identity Appliance.

Configure the Primary vCloud Automation Center Appliance.

If your site includes multiple instances of vCloud Automation Center Appliance, Join a vCloud Automation Center Appliance to a Cluster.

Verify that your installation servers meet the requirements described in IaaS (Windows Server) Requirements.

Verify that you imported a certificate to IIS and that the certificate root or the certificate authority is in the trusted root on the installation machine.

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. http://support.microsoft.com/KB/926642/EN-US. 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.

1

vCloud Automation Center IaaS components use certificates and SSL to secure communications between components.

2

A system administrator downloads the installer from the vCloud Automation Center Appliance and runs the installation wizard.

3

IaaS uses a Microsoft SQL Server database to maintain information about the machines it manages and its own elements and policies.

4

The system administrator installs the Website component to provide access to infrastructure capabilities in the vCloud Automation Center web console. You can install one or many instances of the Website component, but you must configure Model Manager Data on the machine that hosts the first Website component. You install Model Manager Data only once.

5

The Model Manager Website component provides access to infrastructure capabilities in the vCloud Automation Center web console. The system administrator can install one or many instances of the Website component.

6

The Manager Service component coordinates communication between agents and proxy agents, the database, and SMTP. A minimum of one instance of the Manager Service component must be installed. You can install one primary instance and one backup instance of the Manager Service component to provide redundancy in a high-availability deployment.

7

You can install a passive backup instance of the Manager Service component that you can start manually to provide redundancy in a high-availability deployment.

8

You install the Distributed Execution Manager as one of two roles: DEM Orchestrator or DEM Worker. You must install at least one DEM instance for each role, and you can install additional DEM instances to support failover and high-availability.

9

After installation, the system administrator verifies that the IaaS services are running. If the services are running, the installation is a success.

Install a DEM Orchestrator and at least one DEM Worker instance. See Installing Distributed Execution Managers.
