Cluster vCenter Orchestrator behind Load Balancer

Folks

I have installed and cluster 2 vCO servers:

vco1

vco2

vco1 and vco2 will be accessed via a vitual ip address:  vcacvco.pslab.internal

I have a Microsoft CA Authority server

I need to place the two vCO servers behind a netscaler vpx load balancer.  To successfully pass htps:// traffic via

the load balancer I may need certs.  So what is the proceess of having the correct certs conifigured on the vCO server

and then imported into the load balancer?

Thanks in advance...

Hi

vCO 5.5 provides out of box clustering techniques which enables vCO 5.5 to be installed in cluster mode.

Then you can choose between Active/Standby or Active/Active configuration

Selecting the Orchestrator Server Mode: vSphere 5.5 Documentation Center

If you need to create or import a Certificate, see the documentation here: vSphere 5.5 Documentation Center

You can check below VMware KB as an example on configuring a load balancer software with vCO 5.5

VMware KB: Setting up Nginx load balancing software with VMware vCenter Orchestrator 5.5

For detail configuration on the netscaler vpx load balancer, you can check the netscaler vpx load balancer configuration/admin guide.

Thanks,

Bayu
