Deploying vCenter Orchestrator Appliance

Written by Suhas Savkoor

Why vCenter Orchestrator? Because I want to try automation.

Let's start with the simplest thing first: Deploying a vCO appliance in vCenter. Here I am using a 5.5 Orchestrator.
You can download the 5.5 Orchestrator Appliance .ova file here

1. First, let's start by importing the ova file of Orchestrator

2. Browse the location and import the vCO .ova file

3. Accept the EULA

4. Give a name to the appliance and select the Datacenter for this appliance.

5. Provide a datastore for the appliance to reside

6. Provide Networking Details for the appliance

Review the final configuration and complete the deployment.
