Add the vBond Orchestrator to the Overlay Network

After you create a minimal configuration for the vBond orchestrator, you must add it to overlay network by making the vManage NMS aware of the vBond orchestrator. When you add a vBond orchestrator, a signed certificate is generated and is used to validate and authenticate the orchestrator.

Add the vBond Orchestrator and Generate Certificate

To add a vBond orchestrator to the network, automatically generate the CSR, and install the signed certificate:​

  1. In vManage NMS, select the Configuration ► Devices screen.
  2. In the Controllers tab, click Add Controller and select vBond.

3. In the Add vBond dialog box:

  1. Enter the vBond management IP address.
  2. Enter the username and password to access the vBond orchestrator.
  3. Select the Generate CSR checkbox to allow the certificate-generation process to occur automatically.
  4. Click Add.

vManage NMS generates the CSR, retrieves the generated certificate, and automatically installs it on the vBond orchestrator. The new controller device is listed in the Controller table with the controller type, hostname of the controller, IP address, site ID, and other details.

Verify Certificate Installation

To verify that the certificate is installed on a vBond orchestrator:

  1. In vManage NMS, select the Configuration ► Devices screen.
  2. In the Controller table, select the row listing the new device, and check the Certificate Status column to ensure that the certificate has been installed.
