You can deploy Cisco Policy Suite Light Weight Replication (CPS LWR) in an OpenStack environment that has CPS and UDC installed.
You can use the CPS OpenStack Orchestration APIs to deploy the LWR VMs in the regions (two or more sites that may or may not be geographically separated) using the HEAT templates and ENV files.
For more information about installing CPS in OpenStack, see CPS Installation Guide for OpenStack.
For information about build_kafka_server.sh, see CPS LWR Installation Guide for VMware.
Before you start Kafka services in an LWR region, ensure that:
LWR VMs in the region are up and have the Kafka package
A separate replication network is created for communication between LWR VMs
All LWR VMs in the region are reachable from one another
