Deploy VMware vRNI Cloud Proxy on VMC/ vSphere using Terraform vSphere Provider

In my previous post, I had shared the procedure for deploying VMware Cloud Proxy required for multiple Cloud Services such as vRLI Cloud, vRA Cloud 


In this blog, I will walk you through how to deploy VMware vRNI Cloud Proxy using Terraform vSphere Provider 


What is Terraform

 

Terraform provides Infrastructure as a Code to provision and manage any cloud, infrastructure, or service

 

Pre-requisites

 

Following are the pre-requisites

  1. Access to VMware vRNI Cloud Services OTK
  2. VMC /vSphere Endpoint Details are updated in terraform.tfvars
  3. This script assumes has outbound access as required by VMware vRNI Cloud Proxy from the Static IP being used in the terraform.tfvars file
  4. This script assumes that you have network connectivity to vCenter/ESXi host where it needs to be deployed
  5. This script assumes that you have outbound connectivity from where you are running the terraform code 

Usage

 

The script is published on my GitHub. It uses Terraform vSphere Provider

 Clone my git repository locally and navigate to the folder Deploy-CloudProxy

 

 

Update the terraform.tfvars with your environment details

 

 

 

Execute following commands

 

terraform init


 

terraform plan

 

 

terraform apply -auto-approve

 

 

In my environment, it took 20-25 mins to deploy Cloud Proxy on VMC. It will depend on how quick your connection is from where you are executing the script

 

Next, I will be also publishing script for vROPs Cloud Proxy
