Install

This section assumes you have followed the configuration steps and now have:

Installing with Helm

Install the Ansible RM with the helm install command.

helm install <ansible-rm-helm-chart> --name <your-release-name> --namespace <your-namespace> -f <your-custom-values-file>

For example:

helm install osslm-ansible-resource-manager-1.3.6.tgz --name osslm-ansible-rm --namespace lm -f custom-values.yaml

Check the status of your installation with helm or kubectl:

helm status <your-release-name>
kubectl get pods -n <your-namespace>

Wait for the osslm-ansible-rm pod to be marked as ready.

Accessing the Ansible RM

Once installation is complete the Swagger UI for the Ansible RM can be loaded in the browser at https://<your-host-ip>:31081/api/v1.0/resource-manager/ui/ (if you chanegd the HTTPs node port then update the port in the URL to match the value set).

Initialise Ansible RM Database

Before the Ansible RM can be used you must initialise the database tables. In your browser, navigate to the Swagger UI and expand the driver additions APIs.

Execute the POST API named /database to initialise the database.

Next Steps

Now that the RM is installed it needs to be added/registered to the Lifecycle Manager and Deployment Locations/VIMs need to be registered against the RM in LM. Register RM

This will allow LM to make API calls to the appropriate RM instance when seeking to perform Lifecycle Transitions or Operations against a given deployment location/VIM. It is possible to add as many RM instances as may be required by your deployment.
