Configure vCloud for OSM

vCloud director initial preparation

  • In order to get vim-tenant_name from vCloud Director or/and tenant UUID execute.

./ -u admin -p 12345 -c vcloud_host_name -U Administrator -P 123456 -o test list vdc

|               vdc uuid               | vdc name |
| 605ad9e8-04c5-402d-a3b7-0b6c1bacda75 |   test   |
| a5056f85-418c-4bfd-8041-adb0f48be9d9 |   TEF    |
  • In this example two VDC (tenants) are available for organization test
  • Create default network by either using Web UI of vCloud director or

./ -u admin -p 123456 -c vcloud_host_name -U Administrator -P 123456 -o test -v TEF create network test

Crated new network test and uuid: bac9f9c6-6d1b-4af2-8211-b6258659dfb1
  • View organization/dataceter.

./ -u admin -p 123456 -c vcloud_host_name -U Administrator -P 123456 -o test view org test

|               vdc uuid               | vdc name |

| a5056f85-418c-4bfd-8041-adb0f48be9d9 |   TEF    |
|             network uuid             |                network name               |
| f2e8a499-c3c4-411f-9cb5-38c0df7ccf8e |                  default                  |
| 0730eb83-bfda-43f9-bcbc-d3650a247015 |                    test                   |
|             catalog uuid             | catalog name |

Image preparation for VMware

If a user needs on-board image that is not a VMware compatible disk image format such as qcow. User need to convert qcow image to an OVF.

  • The first step is convert qcow disk image to vmdk.
    • qemu-img convert -f qcow2 cirros-disk.img -O vmdk cirros-0.3.4-x86_64-disk.vmdk
  • Second step.
    • Click "New in VMware Fusion , Vmware workstation or vCenter and create a VM from VMDK file created in step one.
  • Third step
    • Adjust hardware setting for VM. For example, if target VMs should have only one vNIC delete all vNIC.
    • Openmano will set up and attach vNIC based on VNF file.
    • Make sure hardware version for VM set to 11 or below.
    • Export VM as OVF and upload file to Openmano.
      • Example of folder structure inside VNF directory. Each exported image placed inside ovfs directory.

Note: You should create OVF image only once if all images of same VNF/OS share same hardware specs. The VM image used as reference VM in vCloud director. Each respected VM that Openmano instantiate used that image as reference.

  • VNF preparation step.

If image is uploaded at vCloud, reference it using the image name at VNFD descriptor.

If not, use a path of an existing image at host where openmano is running

Add vCloud at OSM

There is a parameter called --config used to suply general guidelines both at datacenter creation and datacenter association to openmano tenant (this later precedes)

openmano datacenter-create vcloud-site --type vmware --description "vmware site" --config '{orgname: organization, admin_username: user, admin_password: passwd, nsx_manager:, nsx_user: user, nsx_password: userpwd}' 
openmano datacenter-attach vcloud-site --user=admin --password=userpwd --vim-tenant-name=admin --config '{ "vcenter_port": port, "vcenter_user":user, "vcenter_password":password, "vcenter_ip": }'

The following configuration can be added:

  • orgname: (Optional) Organization name where tenant belong to. Can be ignored if --vim-tenant-name uses <orgname: tenant>
  • admin_username: (Mandatory)Admin user
  • admin_password: (Mandatory) Admin password
  • nsx_manager: (Mandatory). NSX manager host name
  • nsx_user: (Mandatory). nsx_user
  • nsx_password: (Mandatory). nsx_password
  • vcenter_port: (Mandatory).vCenter port
  • vcenter_user: (Mandatory) vCenter username
  • vcenter_password: (Mandatory). vCenter password
  • vcenter_ip: (Mandatory). vCenter IP

The content of config is a yaml format text. The recomendation is to use a comma separated list between curly brackets {} and quotes, e.g.:

--config '{nsx_manager:, nsx_user: user, nsx_password: pasword}'
