The vDRA vSphere installer launches vDRA VMs as specified in the User Input structure. Once the VMs are launched, all VMs
must be registered with the master as displayed using the command
show running-config docker | tab. Also, the system percent-complete must reach 100% as displayed using the command
show system status.
Once the VMs are registered, the installer is done and you can proceed with configuring the vDRA system.
VMware ESXi 6.5 must be installed on all the blades that are used to host the vDRA system. For more details, see http://www.vmware.com/products/esxi-and-esx/overview.html.
Installing vDRA on vSphere includes the following:
Create a vDRA installer VM in vSphere using the latest vDRA Deployer Host VMDK.
Create the artifacts that describe the VM roles, CPS ISO (dra-vnf or binding-vnf), IP addresses, hostnames, target ESXi servers, and so on.
cps install <vnf directory>command.
The ESXi servers must be configured to use the Network Time Protocol (NTP) to synchronize their clocks.
