Deploying the Virtual Appliance with the HP Operations Agent via the command line.

The vSphere virtual appliance that contains a preinstalled HP Operations agent is available with the HP Operations Agent and Infrastructure SPIs 11.12 media in the form of the HPOA_ VM_ OVF10.ova file.

To deploy the virtual appliance with the HP Operations agent from the command line with the OVF tool:

1.
Log on to a vCenter. (can be downloaded from vmware.com)

2. Run the following command if you want to use a  static IP address:  

ovftool -n=  <name of the  appliance> -network=<name of the network>  -ds= <data  store name> -powerOn -dm=thin -prop:dhcp_ static=STATIC - -prop:static_ip=  <static_ IP_ address> -prop:subnet_ ip=<Subnet_ IP> -prop:gateway_ip=<gateway_ IP> -prop:dns1=<DNS_ IP> location_ of_ OVA_ file> -prop:mgmt_ server= <management_ server> -prop:cert_server= <certificate_ server>  <location_ of_ the_ VA>

Run the following command if you want to use a dynamic IP address:


ovftool -n=<name of the appliance> -network= <name of the network> -ds= <data store name> -powerOn -dm=thin -prop:dhcp_static=DHCP -prop:subnet_ip= <Subnet_ IP> -prop:gateway_ip=<gateway_ IP> -prop:dns1=<DNS_IP> location_f_OVA_file> -prop:mgmt_server=<management_server> -prop:cert_server=<certificate_server> <location_of_the_VA>

Where:

<name of the appliance> is the name that you want to assign to the new virtual appliance

<name of the network> is the name of the network where you want to deploy the virtual appliance

<static_ IP_ address> is the static IP address of the virtual apliance

<Subnet_IP> is the IP address of the subnet where you want to deploy the virtual appliance

<gateway_ IP> is the IP address of the gateway server for the virtual appliance

<DNS_ IP> is the IP address  of the    S server for the virtual appliance

<management_ server> is the FQDN IP address of the HPOM management server

<certificate_ server> is the FQDN or IP address of the certificate server

<location_of_OVA_file> is the location where you stored the HP Operations agent OVA file


To verify the installation, log in to the virtual appliance as root and run #/opt/OV/bin/opcagt. All prcesses should be up.
