This part of the lab is presented as a Hands-on Labs Interactive Simulation. This will allow you to experience steps which are too time-consuming or resource intensive to do live in the lab environment. In this simulation, you can use the software interface as if you are interacting with a live environment.
The orange boxes show where to click, and the left and right arrow keys can also be used to move through the simulation in either direction.
We will now begin the VMware Integrated OpenStack Deployment.
This will bring up the deployment wizard showing the steps to Deploy OpenStack. The first step is to select the deployment method. Since we have a pre-filled template configured as part of the OVA that was deployed, we will use that option.
Click radio button 'Use an exported template to pre-fill configuration settings in this wizard'
Now the template file containing information related to the vIMS and vSBC Virtual Network Functions (VNF) will be imported and the VNFs created. The VNFs created from the template include vSBC (provided by Metswitch Perimeta), Home Subscriber System (HSS) gateway (provided by Clearwater Homestead developed by Metaswitch), vIMS VNFs that include Proxy Call Server Control Function, Interrogating Call Server Control Function, Serving Call Server Control Function (provided by Clearwater Sprout project developed by Metaswitch).
Review the details about the deployment that has been presented to you. Note the following:
The management cluster, resource cluster (Nova cluster), datastore, networking and load balancing are all going to be configured as part of the next steps.
After reading the details, then in the rightmost corner, click on the orange rectangular box to scroll down to see the user name and password for the administrator who only has access to perform the configuration as shown below. Note: once the scroll bar goes down you can not go back up.
Click the ‘password’ box and enter the password VMware1!
The template validation will happen and the result of the validation is successful deployment of the “management”, “compute” and “edge” cluster as shown above
Now we are ready to deploy virtual machines (VMs) running on OpenStack infrastructure services. You are now in step-3 of the deployment. Let us start with deploying the management VMs.
What this does is using the information in the configuration template the information needed to configure the management network is being populated as shown.
This will validate all the IP address, naming, port information that was provided. It will take a few seconds. You will see a validation progress slider bar in action. A successful completion of this step will result in moving to the next step.
The host name and virtual IP are pre-filled from the configuration. The dns name has also been pre-added to the DNS server used.
A sequence of validation steps takes place to ensure all management components configurations are correct. The management VMs are now created. There are two VMs shown at the edge cluster and three in management cluster which were created as part of NSX deployment. There are three hosts deployed in management, compute and edge clusters.
This completes the step to configure the load balancer as well as the management cluster components.
You are now into the next step to add Nova clusters. Notice the radio button in figure below is active on ‘compute cluster’ and number of VMs is zero
As a first step in creating the Nova Cluster, the data store to use is first selected based on the information in the template. A vSAN compute cluster that was configured and connected to the three hosts has been found and selected to be used by Nova for creating VM instances.
Now with the datastore assigned to the clusters, each VM in the clusters are rightly configured. You will notice that there are three vSAN storage instance one each assigned to compute, edge and management cluster and all are active. With the Datastore now ready to be used by the OpenStack glance service to store images, we will select vSANCompute to add a Glance datastore.
This will add the capability in vSANCompute and make it ready for storing images. The next step is to configure Neutron networking. To do this we make use of NSX networking.
Configure the admin password:
Notice the Edge cluster, Virtual distributed switch, External network and virtual router appliance size. Data values you see are from the configuration template and deployment that has happened to this stage.
Note: We have not enabled HA as part of this lab, but it can be done in a real production environment.
The first part of configuration is to ensure the authenticated person is performing the associated action. To do this the person need to have administrative privileges to the database referenced by the OpenStack project.
This will start loading all the parameters for the setup that was provided in the previous steps and make the system ready to finish the OpenStack deployment
Upon Successful deployment of VIO all services will be activated and Status of deployment will be seen as Green
Once you review the deployment, notice the ‘Home’ icon at the Top of the vSphere Web Client.
As you can see are multiple tabs related to this deployment. Let us take a quick look at them.
You will see a warning window as you are accessing a non-secure network.
On successful login, you are now in the administrator console showing the overall system view.

Congratulations! You have now loged into the Vmware Horizon Dashboard!
