CSA 4.6 Preparation for Integration with HOS 2

Disclaimer: Please ensure you’ve got a full backup of your environment and a recovery plan before attempting the following procedure…as always!

This blogpost covers the steps necessary to prepare Cloud Service Automation 4.6,  HPE’s cloud service broker, for integration with Helion OpenStack 2.0 – or any OpenStack for that matter. The user must have administrative access to the CSA 4.6 platform.

You also need to have a HP Live Network (HPLN) account with the appropriate privileges.

Procedure

Navigate to the HP Live Network from the CSA server and download the following two items:

LiveNetwork1

Live Network2

Extract both the CSA Content Installer and the OpenStack Capsules to a known directory.

Open up a DOS command window and navigate to this directory.

Verify the version of the content installer by running the following command –


java -jar CapsuleInstaller.jar -version

VerifyContentInstaller3

It should be at least 4.0.

Launch the installer –


java -jar CapsuleInstaller.jar

RunInstaller4

As my environment has CSA and Operations Orchestration (HP OO) installed on the same server I selected the option above to install the content for both applications.

Browse to the extracted OpenStack Capsule and select next.
