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

 In my previous posts, I had shared the procedure for following 


In this blog, I will walk you through how to deploy VMware vROPs 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 vROPs Cloud Services OTK
  2. VMC /vSphere Endpoint Details are updated in terraform.tfvars
  3. This script assumes has DHCP enabled and has outbound access as required by VMware vROPs Cloud Proxy
  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 

 

https://github.com/munishpalmakhija/Terraform.git

 

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