How To - Configure multiple tenants on a single vRA - vRO utilizing SovLabs modules

Overview

You may be in a position where you have a single vRA/vRO deployment but have a need to have multiple tenants.  In this how to we will cover how to enable the SovLabs catalog items for additional tenants beyond the first one you have installed and licensed against.

Considerations

  • Have licensed the SovLabs modules
  • Have installed the SovLabs modules against a vRA tenant already
  • Have configured subsequent Tenants in vRA
  • Have followed the  Pre Requisite guides for the second Tenant (see Additional Info at the bottom of this page)


Procedure

This configuration is a two part update, the first time you run the configuration you are performing a full configuration and the second run you perform the update.  The first run will create the services for the subsequent tenant whilst the second run will publish the updates for the catalog items into the subsequent tenant.

First Run : Full configuration

  1. From within vRO, browse to SovLabs (1) → Configuration (2) → SovLabs Configuration (3)


  2. Right click the SovLabs configuration and select Start workflow


  3. Place a check to accept the term of the license agreement (1) and click Next (2)


  4. Select the new vRA tenant (1), Select the correct business group (2), Select Yes to create the vRA Catalog Service (3), Enter the security group for this tenant (4) and click on Next (5)


  5. Select No to upgrade SovLabs vRA content (1) and click next (2)


  6. Place a check in Yes to install or update SovLabs worflow subscriptions (1) and click Submit (2)


  7. Confirm that the SovLabs Configuration runs successfully on the subsequent tenant.  In this run you will see Create or Update SovLabs LifeCycle Stubs AND Create Service and Entitlement.


  8. If you are in a clustered environment, I would recommend waiting for configurations to sync prior to continuing to the next step.



Second Run : Upgrade configuration

  1. From within vRO, browse to SovLabs (1) → Configuration (2) → SovLabs Configuration (3)


  2. Right click the SovLabs configuration and select Start workflow


  3. Place a check to accept the term of the license agreement (1) and click Next (2)


  4. Select the new vRA tenant from the first run (1), Select the correct business group from the first run (2), Select No to create the vRA Catalog Service (3), Enter the security group for this tenant (4) and click on Next (5)


  5. Place a check in Upgrade Existing SovLabs vRA content (1), Place a check in Update F5 RESTipe (2) and click on Next (3)


  6. Place a check in Yes to install or update SovLabs worflow subscriptions (1) and click Submit (2)


  7. Confirm that the SovLabs Configuration runs successfully on the subsequent tenant. In this run, you should only see Create or Update SovLabs LifeCycle Stubs


  8. If you are in a clustered environment, I would recommend waiting for configurations to sync before continuing

    NOTE: Please check your vRA environment. It is recommended that you restart your environment after this process.

Confirm SovLabs catalog items are visible in subsequent tenant

  1. Log into the subsequent vRA tenant and click on Catalog (If not already there)


  2. Do a search for SovLabs (1). This will display all modules you are licensed for in this tenant (2)
