Before you can install the CloudBoost virtual appliance, you must ensure proper integration with the DHCP, DNS, and Active Directory.

  • Obtain a static IP address for the CloudBoost server, and determine the subnet mask and the gateway.
  • Register the CloudBoost hostname/IP address in DNS.
  • If necessary for integration with Active Directory, create a new username in the domain for the CloudBoost administrator, register a Service Principal Name (SPN) for it, and generate a keytab file for that SPN. 

    Note Image

    Integration with Active Directory for centralized credential management and authentication is not required for CloudBoost, but is highly recommended for production deployments. The CloudBoost virtual appliance can operate without authentication and AD integration, which is useful for evaluation and test deployments.
