VMware vCSA module

This module initializes and manages VMware vCenter Server Appliance (vCSA).

Description

VMware vCenter Server Appliance does not include or support puppet agent. The module manages vCSA through an intermediate host running puppet. The management host connects to vCSA via ssh to perform the initialization and configuration:

+------------+         +-------+
|            |   ssh   | vCSA  |
|   Puppet   | +-----> +-------+
| Management |   |
|    Host    |   |     +-------+
|            |    ---> | vCSA  |
+------------+         +-------+

A single management host can support any number of vCSA as long it has connectivity to the appliances.

Installation

$ puppet module install vmware/vcsa

Usage

Deploy vCSA image to ESX (via ovftool). The following manifest will initialize and configure the appliance with embedded database and sso:

vcsa { 'test':
  username => 'root',
  password => 'vmware',
  server   => '192.168.1.10',
  db_type  => 'embedded',
  capacity => 'm',
}

See init.pp for additional options, and 'vpxd_servicecfg help' for additional information.
