SRDF SRA Hot Fix installation with SRM appliance.

After successful installation of SRM appliance (you can read about it here) it is time now to install and configure SRDF SRA.

There are few things you need to know before installing SRDF:

  1. The version I am presenting here is a Hot Fix not GA
  2. The HF has not been tested and certified by VMware
  3. The HF has advantage over GA in:
    • You do not need to run the shell script after reboot
    • You do not need to re-add vCenter authorizations after upload of new configuration files or reboot
    • The hostname file is not created under /tmp anymore

The script create and place the file on the mounted volume /var/lib/docker/volumes/*

The configuration file netcnfg is located in /var/lib/docker/volumes/name_of_the_volume/symapi/config/

The options file options is located in /var/lib/docker/volumes/name_of_the_volume/symapi/config/

The XML file EmcSrdfSraGlobalOptions is located in /var/lib/docker/volumes/name_of_the_volume/

Here is a video of me guide you step-by-step on how to go about installation:
