Installing and Configuring Boomi AtomSphere Integration Services for PCF

This topic describes how to install and configure Boomi AtomSphere Integration Services for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF).

Install and Configure Boomi AtomSphere Integration Services for PCF

  1. Download the product file from Pivotal Network.

  2. Navigate to the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard and click Import a Product to upload the product file.

  3. Under the Import a Product button, click + next to the version number of Boomi AtomSphere Integration Services for PCF. This adds the tile to your staging area.

  4. Click the newly added Boomi AtomSphere Integration Services for PCF tile.

  5. On the Assign AZs and Network tab, select the appropriate availability zone and network for the Atom(s). Because the Atom requires external network access, the Network should generally be the ert or other non-infrastructure network.

  6. Click Save.

  7. Switch to the Boomi Atom tab and configure the Atom installation parameters.

  8. Enter an Atom name. An instance number is automatically be appended to the name you chose. For example, if the name PCF_Atom is chosen, the first Atom installed is named PCF_Atom_0, the second PCF_Atom_1, etc.

  9. Select the Atom installation type, Token or Username/Password. Dell recommends the Token installation because it is the more secure option. However, this installation method can only install one Atom at a time, you must go through all the configuration steps, Apply changes, and then come back, configure a new token, and Apply changes again.

  10. If Token installation is chosen, fill in the Atom Installer Token field with a token generated from the AtomSphere user interface. For information about generating a token, see Downloading the local Atom installer.

  11. If Username/Password installation is chosen, fill in the Platform Account field with the appropriate AtomSphere account ID (this is the account into which the Atom will be installed), the Platform User field with your AtomSphere username, and the Platform Password field with your AtomSphere password.

    Note: The settings on this tab are only relevant the first time an Atom VM is started (when the Atom installation process is run).

  12. Click Save.

  13. Switch to the Resource Config tab and configure the VMs which will be hosting the Atoms. For information about these choices, see Atom system requirements.

  14. Select the number of INSTANCES according to the number of Atoms to be installed at the end of this configuration process. There is one VM per Atom.

  15. Select the PERSISTENT DISK TYPE size appropriate for the amount of working data you expect to use on the Atoms.

  16. Select the VM TYPE based on the amount of processing power you need for the integration workloads which will be handled by the Atoms.

    IMPORTANT: Always enable the INTERNET CONNECTED option for the Atom VMs. Also, if there is an outbound firewall in place, certain hostnames must be accessible. For the complete list of hostnames, see the row titled “Install and maintain Atoms, Molecules or Atom Clouds” in Hostnames and IP addresses for connecting with Dell Boomi.

  17. Click Save.

    Note: The Stemcell tab should already be configured to an appropriate Linux distribution for the Atom.

  18. Return to the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard and click Apply changes to install the Boomi AtomSphere Integration Services for PCF tile.

    After all the changes are applied to the PCF environment, the newly installed Atoms should show up in the relevant AtomSphere account, either the one chosen for Username/Password installation or the one used to generate the installer token for Token installation.

Note: If the number of instances is reduced on a subsequent re-configuration of this tile, the additional Atom instances is stopped and discarded. However, they will still show up in the AtomSphere user interface. Follow the instructions for manually deleting an Atom from the platform.
