Step-by-step VMware Telco Cloud Automation Manager Deployment Part 3

In the previous part of the Telco Cloud Automation Deployment 1.9.1, we have shown you how Activate the Telco Cloud Automation Manager and discussed about the SSO user . In this post we are going to deploy the Telco Cloud Automation Control Plane.

The VMware Telco Cloud Automation Control Plane (TCA-CP) and VMware Telco Cloud Automation Manager components work together to provide VMware Telco Cloud Automation services. VMware Telco Cloud Automation Control Plane (TCA-CP) provides the infrastructure abstraction for placing workloads across clouds using Telco Cloud Automation. VMware Telco Cloud Automation Control Plane supports the following virtual infrastructure manager (VIM) types: vCenter Server, vCloud Director, VMware Integrated Open Stack, and Kubernetes.

Deploying the VMware Telco Cloud Automation Control Plane in vSphere Client

To Deploy the VMware Telco Cloud Automation OVA file, perform a standard OVF template deployment through the vSphere Client


Ensure that you have downloaded the VMware Telco Cloud Automation OVA file


1. Right-click any inventory object that is a valid parent object of a virtual machine, such as a data center, folder, cluster, resource pool, or host, and select Deploy OVF Template

2. Put the OVF URL Link and Click Next

3. Enter the Name of the VM and click Next

4. Select the ESXI and Click Next

5. Review the Details and Click Next

6. Accept the License and click Next

7. Select the Storage and Click Next

8. Select the Network as management-pg and click Next

9. Enter the Password as VMware1! And scroll down

10.Under Network Properties Enter the FQDN: lab-tcacp, IPV4 : 192.168.xx.xx, IP Range : 16, Gateway : 192.168.0.xx

11. Leave the Static Route Section Empty, we are not using this in our Lab

12. Under DNS enter the IP: 192.168.0.xx and domain: corp.local

13.Under NTP enter Ip: 192.168.0.xx

14.Under Configuration Appliance Role drop down Select ControlPlane

15. Review the Details and Click Finish.

Once you click finish the TCA-CP VM will be deployed in your cluster. Important thing to note here is that we have deployed TCA-Manager and TCA-Control Plane using a single OVA Given by VMware. If you see the step 14 we select the Configure Appliance Role.

What to do next

Allow up to 5 minutes for initialization, then browse to the appliance management interface for the initial activation using https://tca-ip-or-fqdn:9443.

The Next Step After you deploy the TCA-Control Plane is to Activate the Control Plane. We shall share the Activation Steps in up coming Post until then happy Learning .
