9 1Before You Begin Cast Iron s products run equally as well in the virtual world as they do in the physical world. You can install Cast Iron s Operating System (CIOS) on a single virtual machine running one integration project or you can install CIOS on multiple virtual machines running many projects and create an infrastructure for a data center. A virtual appliance is a virtual machine packaged with a guest operating system and optional application software. This guide provides information and procedures to create virtual appliances with CIOS as the guest operating system. If you are creating a virtual appliance to run a single integration project all you will need is: A host machine which can be a laptop, desktop, or a server CIOS ISO ESX, ESXi or VMware Server VMware Infrastructure Client (required for ESX and ESXi only) Internet connection Data Center You can install the Cast Iron Operating System (CIOS) onto multiple virtual machines to efficiently create a virtual environment that replicates racks of physical Integration Appliances. While there are various vendors you could use to create this virtual environment, we recommend that you use VMware to create, manage, and maintain your virtual environment. Your virtual environment should consist of the following components: CIOS ISO A SAN A pool of machines (preferably a blade server) ESX, ESXi, or VMware Server Cast Iron Integration Appliance Virtual Appliance User s Guide 1

10 Before You Begin VMware Infrastructure Client (required for ESX and ESXi only) VMware VMotion and VMware High Availability add-ons (optional) The recommended VMware add-ons can help you manage and balance the workload across multiple virtual machines, find the optimum location for the virtual machines in a data center, and manage failovers and OS related failures. Consult VMware documentation for information about the recommended addons and setting up the architecture of your virtual environment: data centers, hosts, clusters, resource pools, and virtual machines. 2 Virtual Appliance User s Guide Cast Iron Integration Appliance

11 Working with Virtual Machines 2Working with Virtual Machines Create a virtual appliance using the VMware Infrastructure Client. Use one of the recommended configurations to configure your virtual machine. After you create and configure a virtual machine, use the VMware Infrastructure Client Console to install the Cast Iron Operating System (CIOS) onto the virtual machine and retrieve all necessary licenses. You can use this fully configured Virtual Appliance to create clones. The following sections provide more information about configuring a virtual machine and installing the CIOS to create a Virtual Appliance: Recommended Configurations, 4 Creating a Virtual Machine, 5 Installing CIOS onto a Virtual Machine, 7 Cloning a Virtual Appliance, 15 Known Issues, 17 Cast Iron Integration Appliance Virtual Appliance User s Guide 3

12 Working with Virtual Machines Recommended Configurations While you can customize the configuration of your virtual machine, it is strongly suggested that you use one of the following configurations when you create a virtual machine that runs the CIOS: If you do not configure the components properly, the sensitive relationship between the amount of RAM and disk space available to a virtual machine can affect the performance of your virtual machine. NOTE: VMware does not allow the virtual machine to be multi-processor if the host machine is uni-processor. Cast Iron supports the following products as virtual machines: Table 2-1 Recommended Configurations for Virtual Machines Product CPU RAM Disk va GB 10GB va GB 15 GB va GB 45 GB The Product column represents the recommended configuration for the listed products. However, other factors, such as the projected processing volume for your project, might cause you to choose a different configuration for your Virtual Appliance. Later, if you determine that more or less resources are required for your project, you can configure a new virtual machine and run your project on that virtual machine. Specifying more than 8 GB of RAM for a va4000 might cause it to not start with a message stating that there is not enough disk space available. NOTE: You cannot edit the configuration settings of a cloned virtual machine. 4 Virtual Appliance User s Guide Cast Iron Integration Appliance

13 Working with Virtual Machines Creating a Virtual Machine Before you create a virtual machine, be sure you have reviewed the recommended configurations discussed in Recommended Configurations on page 4. Whether your Virtual Appliance uses a single-processor or multiple-processors is determined by the setting you choose while creating a virtual machine in the VMware Infrastructure Client. If you configure your virtual machine to support multiple processors, then the Virtual Appliance is enabled for multiple processors. If you configure your virtual machine to support a single processor, then the Virtual Appliance is restricted to just one processor. You can create virtual machines using ESX, ESXi, or VMware Server for development purposes. However, it is recommended that you use ESX or ESXi for production virtual machines. It is strongly recommended that you choose a multi-processor configuration for your virtual machines. NOTE: VMware does not allow the virtual machine to be multi-processor if the host machine is uni-processor. To create a virtual machine: 1. Log into the VMware Infrastructure Client. The Hosts and Clusters directory displays in the navigation pane. 2. Expand the Hosts and Clusters directory and locate the host machine that will host your new virtual machine. NOTE: You must have the appropriate privileges to access the host machines. For more information about permissions, see VMware documentation. 3. Create a new virtual machine by completing one of the following tasks: Right-click the host machine and select New Virtual Machine. In the Getting Started tab, click the Create a New Virtual Machine link. In the navigation pane, select the host machine and type CNTL + N. With the host machine selected, select New Virtual Machine from the File menu. The New Virtual Machine Wizard displays. 4. Choose the Typical virtual machine configuration and click Next. 5.

Log out. hostname> exit The session closes. Setting the va Virtual Identity and Installing va Licenses After you install the CIOS onto the virtual machine, you must set the virtual identity so that the Virtual Appliance (va) can retrieve the CIOS license from the Cast Iron Licensing Server. Installing CIOS license requires connectivity with the Internet and that port 443 be open if your host machine is behind a firewall. If you plan to run the virtual appliance in production mode behind the firewall and have connectivity with the Internet, contact Cast Iron support. After you set the virtual identity of the va, any clones you create from this va maintain the same virtual identity. However, the license of the cloned va differs from the license of the original va. For more information about cloning vas, see Cloning a Virtual Appliance on page 15. To set the virtual identity and install the CIOS license: 1. In the Console tab of the VMware Infrastructure Client, enter your login name at the Cast Iron Integration Appliance prompt. For example: localhost login: admin 2. Enter the password: The command prompt changes to <localhost>/standalone> Because the Virtual Appliance does not have a static hostname, the login prompt is slightly different from the login prompt you see on a hardware Integration Appliance. NOTE: While performing this procedure, you can ignore the following warning: ==> WARNING: This Integration Appliance isn t licensed! 12 Virtual Appliance User s Guide Cast Iron Integration Appliance

21 Working with Virtual Machines 3. Set the Virtual Appliance virtual identity, which you received from Cast Iron Systems, by typing the following command at the command prompt: mgmt virtualidentity set <virtual identity> where: <virtual identity> is the virtual identity provided to you by Cast Iron. 4. Reboot the Virtual Appliance. system reboot Upon startup, the Integration Appliance automatically retrieves license(s) from the Cast Iron Licensing Server and you should no longer see the warning messages about the Integration Appliance not being licensed. 5. When the login prompt displays, enter your login and password. For example: 6. Confirm the Virtual Appliance is licensed by typing the following command at the command prompt: system show license When you see the message, Licensed for Standalone Additional features:, the Virtual Appliance is now licensed and ready to run deployed projects. Manually Downloading Licenses You can manually download licenses should your licenses not be downloaded automatically when setting the virtual identity. Perform the following procedure to download licenses from the Cast Iron Licensing Server: 1. Login to the WMC. 2. Select Manually Download. 3. Select Download... The File Download window displays.

23 Working with Virtual Machines Cloning a Virtual Appliance Using the VMware Infrastructure Client, you can clone an existing virtual machine. Each clone has the same configurations, CIOS version, and virtual identity as the original virtual machine. Therefore, cloning a virtual machine allows you to increase the number of virtual machines on the host, without having to configure and install each virtual machine separately. You are limited to the number of clones in the agreement that you signed with Cast Iron. When you clone a virtual machine, the same virtual identity is used for the clone. Each virtual identity is allowed a limited number of clones, and each clone receives an individual serial number which requires the clone to have its own license. Therefore, you must ensure that the clone has Internet connectivity so that, when the clone becomes active, it can connect to the Cast Iron Licensing Server and obtain a license. Copying a virtual machine from one host machine to another host machine might invalidate the license because the serial number is generated based on the host machine hardware. Using VMotion to move the Virtual Appliance from one host machine to another can prevent an invalid license. You cannot edit the configuration settings of a cloned virtual machine. To create a virtual machine that uses different configuration settings, you must create a new virtual machine. For more information about virtual machine configuration settings, see Recommended Configurations on page 4. To clone a virtual machine: 1. Power off the virtual machine that you are cloning, by completing one of the following tasks: Right-click the host machine and select Power Off. In the Getting Started tab, click the Power Off the Virtual Machine link. In the navigation pane, select the host machine and type CNTL + E. Click the Power Off icon on the VMware Infrastructure Client toolbar. You can view status in the Recent Tasks pane of the VMware Infrastructure Client. 2.
