vRealize Suite Lifecycle manager uses binaries to deploy the various products. You must add & configure binary in the vRSLCM in order to deploy all your vRealize Suite products using vRSLCM. In this post we will see on How to Add Binary in vRSLCM.
vRealize Suite Lifecycle manager uses product binaries to deploy the products. You must provide the Binary from where vRSLCM can pull the data. In vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager you can add & configure binaries using 3 different ways which are described below:
Local : Local binary is where you must upload the OVA files of vRealize Suite products & you can provide location of local while configuration. By default local uses “/data” location. So if you want to use local than you must upload all the OVA files to the “/data” location by logging in to the vRSLCM Appliance using WinSCP or any other tools.
NFS : NFS is simple network share location which you can use to supply product binaries. You can use NFS Share folder to keep all the product OVA files & you can set NFS Location in vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager binary.
MyVMware: MyVMware is simple where you can just add your VMware account so all the binaries will directly get downloaded from VMware portal. So if you have internet connectivity to your vRSLCM Appliance you can use this option as well.
