HV-VES Cloudify Installation

Starting from ONAP/Honolulu release, HV-VES is installed with a DCAEGEN2-Services Helm charts. This installation mechanism is convenient, but it doesn`t support all HV-VES features (e.g. CMP v2 certificates, and IPv4/IPv6 dual stack networking). This description demonstrates, how to deploy HV-VES collector using Cloudify orchestrator.

Setting insecure mode for testing

HV-VES application is configured by default to use TLS/SSL encryption on TCP connection.

Accessing bootstrap container with Kubernetes command line tool

To find bootstrap pod, execute the following command:

kubectl -n <onap namespace> get pods | grep bootstrap

To run command line in bootstrap pod, execute:

kubectl -n <onap namespace> exec -it <bootstrap-pod-name> bash

Install HV-VES collector using Cloudify blueprint inputs

  1. If You have a running HV-VES instance, uninstall HV-VES and delete current deployment:

cfy executions start -d hv-ves uninstall
cfy deployments delete hv-ves
  1. Create new deployment with inputs from yaml file (available by default in bootstrap container):

cfy deployments create -b hv-ves -i inputs/k8s-hv_ves-inputs.yaml hv-ves

In order to disable the TLS security, override the ‘secuirty_ssl_disable’ value in the deloyment:

cfy deployments create -b hv-ves -i inputs/k8s-hv_ves-inputs.yaml -i security_ssl_disable=True hv-ves

To verify inputs, You can execute:

cfy deployments inputs hv-ves
  1. Install HV-VES deployment:

cfy executions start -d hv-ves install

Using external TLS certificates obtained using CMP v2 protocol

In order to use the X.509 certificates obtained from the CMP v2 server (so called “operator`s certificates”), refer to the following description:
