Enabling the Virtual Data Center

You can enable the Virtual Data Center (VDC) during installation or upgrade, or you can enable it later.

Note

If you enable the VDC later, you must also enable the custom actions and external script actions related to it manually.

To enable VDC manually

  1. Log on to the BMC Network Automation application server as a system administrator or user with access to the BCAN_DATA directory.
  2. Back up the BCAN_DATA\global.properties file.

    For details about this file, see Default global.properties file.
  3. Use a text editor to open the global.properties file.
  4. Locate the following lines:
    # Indicates if virtual datacenter functionality is enabled.
    # Default is false.
  5. Ensure that the following line in the file contains a value of true and is not commented out:
    vdcEnabled=true
  6. Save the file and close the editor.
  7. Restart the BMC Network Automation application server.

    Note

    Enable the custom actions and external script actions related to the VDC, as described in the following steps.

  8. Use a web browser to log on to the BMC Network Automation user interface as system administrator or user with access to the Admin tab.
  9. Select Admin > Network Admin > Device Adapters. See Managing device adapters.
  10. Enable the custom actions and external script actions that are needed by the container blueprint which you want to use for provisioning containers, as follows:
    1. In the Adapter column, expand Custom Actions or External Script Actions.
    2. Click  Enable to the right of each adapter that you want to enable, and then click OK in the confirmation dialog box.
