Power on and initialize the virtual appliance

After installing the OVF, you must power on and initialize the virtual machines.

1
Open vCenter®, select the Foglight-FVE-FSM-vApp that you installed, then click Power on the vApp.

If DHCP is present, the FMS VM acquires an IP address. If you want to assign a static IP address, follow the instruction in the Change the network settings section.
5
If you already have other Foglight-FVE-FSM-vApp, FVE-vApp, or FSM-vApp running on the Host/Cluster, you must manually reconfigure the static IP of the newer vApp VMs, and change the DBS Internal IP address in the FMS VM configuration file.
a
Reconfigure static IPs for both FMS and DBS VMs for the second NIC which is packaged with 192.168.200.1 and 192.168.200.2 IP to a different value. For details, see Change the network settings.
b
Change the DB IP in the FMS VMs server.config file to the one set for the DBS VM. Change the line Server.databse.host with the new IP in the /home/foglight/Quest/Foglight/config/server.config file.

Open vCenter®, select Foglight-FVE-FSM-vApp from the navigation tree, and click Power off vApp.
