Deploying PCF Runtime for Windows
This topic describes how to install and configure the Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) Runtime for Windows v1.9 tile. The PCF Runtime for Windows tile installs Windows cells on your PCF deployment.
To install the PCF Runtime for Windows v1.9 tile, you must have Ops Manager v1.9.2 or later and Elastic Runtime v1.9.0 or later deployed to vSphere.
There are two settings in the Elastic Runtime tile that affect the Windows cells installed by the PCF Runtime for Windows tile. Configure these settings as desired:
- In the Networking section, if you select the Disable SSL certificate verification for this environment checkbox, SSL certificate verification is disabled for Windows cells.
- In the System Logging section, if you configure an external syslog aggregator, logs are drained from Windows cells as well as non-Windows cells.
Download the product file from the Pivotal Cloud Foundry Runtime for Windows section of Pivotal Network.
Navigate to the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard and click Import a Product to upload the product file.
Click + under the uploaded PCF Windows Runtime tile to add it to your staging area.
- Click the newly added PCF Windows Runtime tile.
Click Resource Config and adjust the number and VM types of your Windows cells as needed.
Click Stemcell. Record the stemcell version number required by the tile.
Build your own stemcell by following the instructions in Creating a vSphere Stemcell.
Return to the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard and click Apply Changes to install the PCF Runtime for Windows tile.
After you have deployed the PCF Runtime for Windows tile, developers can then push .NET applications to Windows cells. For more information, see the Deploying .NET Apps to Windows Cells topic.
