This section, describes how to configure the VDC required for HDM deployment.
To perform the configuration steps in this section can take from 30 to 60 minutes
This network will be connected to the edge gateway. Cross-WAN communications between on-premises and cloud will be routed through this network for the HDM Appliance. IPsec tunnels step 3 will be configured to this network to complete the network configuration.
Select the Virtual Data Center that will be the target of migration.
Create a new network and select Routed Network Type
Provide the name “UPLINK_WAN_NETWORK” and Gateway CIDR for the network. Note the CIDR; this will be required when creating the VPN connection between on-premises and the edge gateway in the cloud.
Select the edge gateway
Specify static-ip pool of at least 20 IP addresses
Add DNS records if required
This network will be created for HDM Appliance communications and for migrating virtual machines across vApps for the same VDC.
The components of HDM need to be deployed on a vApp. If you don’t already have a vApp for this purpose, one will need to be created.
Attach the VDC network UPLINK_WAN_NETWORK and HDM_INTERNAL_NETWORK, both of which were created in steps 1 and 2, to the vApp where HDM will be deployed.
NOTE: HDM_INTERNAL_NETWORK should be added to all vApps where VMs will be migrated.
