Hello and welcome to lab number 13
in this lab will be working with V APS.
We'll get a creative E AP You'll you'll at some v EMS to it.
power back down and then remove it.
Okay, so the V app is actually really useful.
A bit of technology allows you to group
several V EMS together
so that you can build a multitiered application
and then treated as a single unit,
which is pretty handy.
So let's get logged into our environment.
Looks like a fat finger. The password.
it's very easy to create the VF.
go to our home inventory hosts and clusters screen,
and we can see that we've got all our v ems with our couple of our hosts.
But in order to create the aptly actually have to go to the PM's and templates screen. So we hold down control shift V
That takes us right to this screen.
Now, I already have the two v EMS power down.
They do need to be powered down when you create the V app. Just keep that in mind.
click my Lab PM's folder.
This is where the PM's probably should live
action within their first.
Now I right click the folder and I can select new V app
and please think about using folders as much as possible just to keep everything organized.
It's much simpler to
give descriptive names to your V EMS in your folders and bill to find things later. You can always do a search in the inventory
up here in the corner,
but if your name everything and organize it well from the beginning, it just
it's a lot easier to deal with.
Okay, so we select new V app.
We'll give it a name like My
Then I'll pick the host.
I'll stick with that 100
we can pre allocate. Some resource is,
for instance, your CPU memory sources can be set thio several different ranges. We can have low
or you can specify an absolute number.
Using the reservations is a little bit more flexible on. We'll talk about that later.
Okay, we get to our finish screen
and we'll go ahead and click that
and you see the new style icon that gets created here. My V ep.
It's got an interesting little cluster of the EMS.
So what we'll do next is
actually dragged the V EMS
Okay, so let's change our view to hosts and clusters, so I'll do a control shift. H
And now I can see that my V EP appears under the host, and I could expand it to see the V ems that are
Now let's look at our settings or right click
go down to at its settings
again, we can adjust. Our resource is for CPU and RAM
and also adjust to start order.
So this is a simple of Yep, with only two v EMS. But you could conceivably see how you could have multiple
V EMS. They're all part of an application, and you might want to start them
in a standard fashion. So you can pick two different groups
and you simply select of'em and move it around with the arrows.
And you could change the
the timing of the start up.
If that suits your purposes,
we're just gonna leave this the way it's It is set right now.
and we'll go ahead and click. Okay,
Now, the next task is to power the VF on
so we can select our right click and select power on.
And now both of those V ems.
You can see that the bottom here, they're both powering up,
and they're pretty much pretty much ready to run.
so very simple, as you can see, to create the virtual app.
And it gives you a great logical
to structure of your applications and maker environment. More easy to manage.
Okay, so now we're going to shut down the Viet once it finishes powering all the way up. Since we don't actually need it, we just created it for demonstration purposes.
98%. We're almost there.
I left the default settings for the amount of delay for starting up. The APS are starting up the VM. They're part of the app,
they both powered up at the same time. That's why we're waiting at the same moment.
Since they're they're the same exact VM.
However, if you had a database
ah, Web server and maybe an application server bundled together as a V app.
You might want to stagger that, you know, start the database server first.
It might take a long time to get going
the application server on the Web server later.
Okay, so the VF is fully powered on. We can see both of the virtual machines running.
Okay. And now I'd like to shut it out
selections, right. Click
and go to shut down.
Asks if I want to shut down the guest operating systems.
you could be more graceful and shut down each individual
But since these air Lavey EMS, I'm not worried about it.
Okay, so now the V M v EPA shut down. I can right click
and delete from disk.
Oh, but don't do that too soon. You actually want to drag the VMS out,
drag them back to your host.
Otherwise you might delete the PM's. You don't want that. So now we can delete the V app from desk.
Okay. The last task that we have to do, which is a good idea when you work with the APS,
the V Center server appliance.
So I'm going to open a Web browser
He's taking a moment.
The Web client does have some initialization time
compared to using the vic, so keep that in mind.
Okay, so our last task
is to get connected to the appliance
It's a good idea when you're working with the APS,
especially if they've been running for a while to occasionally reboot your server appliance.
Because there are problems like I created somewhat from
NTP obviously keeps that situation under control, but
we haven't really logged into the
server appliance interface very much so. Let's have a look at that.
Will run Internet explore
and I'm going to the court. 9443 is for the Web client.
the administrative client, it's actually 54 80.
So we'll go ahead and accept
a little bit bigger.
So all our service is air running. Everything looks good, but we're just gonna go ahead and reboot anyway.
So go the system tab
and you have a reboot button here,
and that concludes lab number 13. So
Well, actually, start working with some of our access controls
so that we can manage user permissions on R V EMS
and allows certain things and disallow others.
All right, Thank you. See you in lab 14.
