Use Case - Create a Web Server to communicate with the internet
This use case is a walk-through of a general process for deploying a web and application server through VMware Cloud Director.
Build Virtual Machines¤
The first step is to build the required virtual machines (VMs).
VMs can be created as standalone or within a vApp. In this example we will create the VM from scratch inside a vApp which allow you to combine multiple VMs into a single management unit.
Additional information on how to import a saved vApp from an imported OVF
Example only. vApp content and IP addresses are variable. IPs can be assigned in several different ways.
Create an Internal Network¤
An ORG vDC network is required to allow your VMs to communicate with each other and external networks.
