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.
Create an IPSec tunnel between the organization's edge gateway and the on-premises datacenter. To complete the VPN setting the following information will be required:
Figure 1: Finding tenant external network IP
To get to the edge VPN configuration page.
Figure 2: VPN configuration options
Add recommended firewall rule by specifying source and destination subnet with service any
You can test the IPsec connectivity using ping command from on-premises to cloud side routed network gateway. If you have configured advanced firewall rules, ensure that ICMP traffic is allowed.
Ping test from on-premises to the cloud gateway
To ping test from the cloud to the on-premises IP, a test machine will need to be created on the routed network in the cloud.
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.
