Configuring after installation
There are two methods for configuring BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, depending on the infrastructure platform you require and the complexity of your cloud:
- If your cloud environment is a simple one, and you will use only VMware vSphere or Amazon Web Services as your infrastructure platform, then you can configure BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management using the Quick Start wizard.
- If your cloud environment is more complex, or it requires an infrastructure platform other than VMware vSphere or Amazon Web Services, then you must configure BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management manually by performing tasks in the participating BMC products, as well as in the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management console.
