Lab 6: vCloud Director Initial Configuration:
After the vCloud director Initial Configuration, I logged into my vCenter Server to quickly setup the vCloud director. The IP that I used for the vCloud Director HTTP Service is : 192.168.10.31 So I fired up the browser and typed 192.168.10.31 IP in my firefox.
Here comes the Initial Screen which welcomes for the quick VMware vCloud Director Setup Which say that I have enter the following details like license agreement, Licenkey, system admin account and few other related settings
The Following screen is allo about accepting the License agreement. I reviewed all the License agreements and I selected Yes, I accept the terms in the license agreement and clicked on Next.
In the next screen, you have to enter the License key for your VMware vCloud Director.
In the next screen it asks you to create the Administrator account for your VMware vCloud Director, and you need to setup the user password and the Contact Information for the VMware vCloud Director. I filled up the Contact Information and setup the user and the password.
In the next step of the Initial VMware vCloud Director wizard, it was asking me the system name that I use to refer this vClooud Director instance and the Installation ID.
I used system name as vclouddirector and installation ID: 1 Since this is my first installation in the cloud environment and then I clicked on Next.
Here comes the Ready to complete wizard which summarizes the Initial configuration that we used so far. Review the same and click on Finish to complete the same.
As soon as I clicked on finish. The beautiful VMware vCloud Director page appeared.
