Configuring BOSH Director on OpenStack

This topic describes how to configure BOSH Director after deploying Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) on OpenStack. Use this topic when Installing Pivotal Cloud Foundry on OpenStack.

Note: You can also perform the procedures in this topic using the Ops Manager API. For more information, see Using the Ops Manager API.

Step 1: Access Ops Manager

  1. In a web browser, navigate to the fully qualified domain you created in the Create a DNS Entry step of Provisioning the OpenStack Infrastructure.

  2. When Ops Manager starts for the first time, you must choose one of the following:

    • Internal Authentication: If you use Internal Authentication, Ops Manager maintains your user database.
    • SAML Identity Provider: If you use a SAML Identity Provider (IdP), an external identity server maintains your user database.
    • LDAP Server: If you use a LDAP Server, an external identity server maintains your user database.

    Select authentication

Internal Authentication

  1. When redirected to the Internal Authentication page, do the following:

    • Enter a Username, Password, and Password confirmation to create an Admin user.
    • Enter a Decryption passphrase and the Decryption passphrase confirmation. This passphrase encrypts the Ops Manager datastore, and is not recoverable.
    • If you are using an HTTP proxy or HTTPS proxy, follow the instructions in the Configuring Proxy Settings for the BOSH CPI topic.
    • Read the End User License Agreement, and select the checkbox to accept the terms.
    • Click Setup Authentication.

    Om login

  2. Log in to Ops Manager with the Admin username and password you created in the previous step.

    Cf login

SAML Identity Provider

  1. Log in to your IdP console and download the IdP metadata XML. Optionally, if your IdP supports metadata URL, you can copy the metadata URL instead of the XML.

  2. Copy the IdP metadata XML or URL to the Ops Manager SAML Identity Provider login page.
    Meta om

    Note: The same IdP metadata URL or XML is applied for the BOSH Director. If you use a separate IdP for BOSH, copy the metadata XML or URL from that IdP and enter it into the BOSH IdP Metadata text box in the Ops Manager login page.

  3. Enter values for the fields listed below. Failure to provide values in these fields results in a 500 error.

    • SAML admin group: Enter the name of the SAML group that contains all Ops Manager administrators. This field is case-sensitive.
    • SAML groups attribute: Enter the groups attribute tag name with which you configured the SAML server. This field is case-sensitive.
  4. Enter your Decryption passphrase. Read the End User License Agreement, and select the checkbox to accept the terms.

  5. Your Ops Manager login page appears. Enter your username and password. Click Login.

  6. Download your SAML Service Provider metadata (SAML Relying Party metadata) by navigating to the following URLs:

    • 6a. Ops Manager SAML service provider metadata: https://OPS-MAN-FQDN:443/uaa/saml/metadata
    • 6b. BOSH Director SAML service provider metadata: https://BOSH-IP-ADDRESS:8443/saml/metadata

      Note: To retrieve your BOSH-IP-ADDRESS, navigate to the Status tab in the BOSH Director tile. Record the BOSH Director IP address.

  7. Configure your IdP with your SAML Service Provider metadata. Import the Ops Manager SAML provider metadata from Step 6a above to your IdP. If your IdP does not support importing, provide the values below.

    • Single sign on URL: https://OPS-MAN-FQDN:443/uaa/saml/SSO/alias/OPS-MAN-FQDN
    • Audience URI (SP Entity ID): https://OP-MAN-FQDN:443/uaa
    • Name ID: Email Address
    • SAML authentication requests are always signed
  8. Import the BOSH Director SAML provider metadata from Step 6b to your IdP. If the IdP does not support an import, provide the values below.

    • Single sign on URL: https://BOSH-IP:8443/saml/SSO/alias/BOSH-IP
    • Audience URI (SP Entity ID): https://BOSH-IP:8443
    • Name ID: Email Address
    • SAML authentication requests are always signed
  9. Return to the BOSH Director tile, and continue with the configuration steps below.

LDAP Server

  • For Server URL, enter the URL that points to your LDAP server. With multiple LDAP servers, separate their URLs with spaces. Each URL must include one of the following protocols:

    • ldap://: This specifies that the LDAP server uses an unencrypted connection.
    • ldaps://: This specifies that the LDAP server uses SSL for an encrypted connection and requires that the LDAP server holds a trusted certificate or that you import a trusted certificate to the JVM truststore. Ldap serv
  • For LDAP Username and LDAP Password, enter the LDAP Distinguished Name (DN) and the password for binding to the LDAP Server. Example DN: cn=administrator,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com

    Note: Pivotal recommends that you provide LDAP credentials that grant read-only permissions on the LDAP Search Base and the LDAP Group Search Base. In addition to this, if the bind user belongs to a different search base, you must use the full DN.

    WARNING: Pivotal recommends against reusing LDAP service accounts across environments. LDAP service accounts should not be subject to manual lockouts, such as lockouts that result from users utilizing the same account. Also, LDAP service accounts should not be subject to automated deletions, since disruption to these service accounts could prevent user logins.

  • For User Search Base, enter the location in the LDAP directory tree from which any LDAP User search begins. The typical LDAP Search Base matches your domain name.

    For example, a domain named “cloud.example.com” typically uses the following LDAP User Search Base: ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com

  • For User Search Filter, enter a string that defines LDAP User search criteria. These search criteria allow LDAP to perform more effective and efficient searches. For example, the standard LDAP search filter cn=Smith returns all objects with a common name equal to Smith.

    In the LDAP search filter string that you use to configure your runtime, use {0} instead of the username. For example, use cn={0} to return all LDAP objects with the same common name as the username.

    In addition to cn, other attributes commonly searched for and returned are mail, uid and, in the case of Active Directory, sAMAccountName.

    Note: For instructions for testing and troubleshooting your LDAP search filters, see Configuring LDAP Integration with Pivotal Cloud Foundry in the Pivotal Support Knowledge Base.

  • For Group Search Base, enter the location in the LDAP directory tree from which the LDAP Group search begins.

    For example, a domain named “cloud.example.com” typically uses the following LDAP Group Search Base: ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com

  • For Group Search Filter, enter a string that defines LDAP Group search criteria. The standard value is member={0}.

  • For Email Attribute, enter the attribute name in your LDAP directory that corresponds to the email address in each user record, for example mail.

  • For LDAP RBAC Admin Group Name, enter the DN of the LDAP group you want to have admin permissions in Ops Manager.

  • From the dropdown, select how the UAA handles LDAP server referrals out to other external user stores. The UAA can:

    • Automatically follow any referrals.
    • Ignore referrals and return partial result.
    • Throw exception for each referral and abort.
  • For Server SSL Cert, paste in the root certificate from your CA certificate or your self-signed certificate.

  • Enter a Decryption passphrase and the Decryption passphrase confirmation. This passphrase encrypts the Ops Manager datastore, and is not recoverable.

  • If you are using an HTTP proxy or HTTPS proxy, follow the instructions in Configuring Proxy Settings for the BOSH CPI.

  • Read the End User License Agreement, and select the checkbox to accept the terms.

  • Select Provision an admin client in the BOSH UAA. You can use this to enable BOSH automation with scripts and tooling. For more information, see Provision Admin Client in Creating UAA Clients for BOSH Director.

  • Click Setup Authentication.

  • Return to the BOSH Director tile, and continue with the configuration steps below.

Step 2: OpenStack Configs Page

  15. For CredHub Encryption Provider, you can choose whether BOSH CredHub stores its encryption key internally on the BOSH Director and CredHub VM, or in an external hardware security module (HSM). The HSM option is more secure.

    Before configuring an HSM encryption provider in the Director Config pane, you must follow the procedures and collect information described in Preparing CredHub HSMs for Configuration.

    Note: After you deploy Ops Manager with an HSM encryption provider, you cannot change BOSH CredHub to store encryption keys internally.

    CredHub Encryption Provider options in the Director Config pane

    • Internal: Select this option for internal CredHub key storage. This option is selected by default and requires no additional configuration.
    • Luna HSM: Select this option to use a SafeNet Luna HSM as your permanent CredHub encryption provider, and fill in the following fields:
      1. Encryption Key Name: Any name to identify the key that the HSM uses to encrypt and decrypt the CredHub data. Changing this key name after you deploy Ops Manager can cause service downtime.
      2. Provider Partition: The partition that stores your encryption key. Changing this partition after you deploy Ops Manager could cause service downtime. For this value and the ones below, use values gathered in Preparing CredHub HSMs for Configuration.
      3. Provider Partition Password
      4. Provider Client Certificate: The certificate that validates the identity of the HSM when CredHub connects as a client.
      5. Provider Client Certificate Private Key
      6. HSM Host Address

  4. Choose Generate passwords or Use default BOSH password. Pivotal recommends that you use the Generate passwords option for greater security.

  5. Click Save. To view your saved Director password, click the Credentials tab.

Step 9: BOSH DNS Config Page

The BOSH DNS Config pane allows you to configure DNS for BOSH Director by adding excluded recursors, a recursor timeout, and handlers.

The following describes the fields on the BOSH DNS Config pane:

  • Excluded Recursors: Exclude recursor addresses, which are URL redirects, so that they are not contacted by the BOSH DNS server. For more information about how the BOSH DNS release selects recursors, see Recursors in the BOSH documentation.
  • Recursor Timeout: Specify a timeout for the BOSH DNS server to contact any connected recursor addresses. The time limit includes dialing, writing, and reading from the recursor. If any of these actions exceeds the time limit, the action fails.
  • Handlers: Specify recursor addresses that apply to specific domains. For example, you can use handlers to forward all requests to a domain to a private DNS for resolution. For more information about using handlers, see Additional Handlers in the BOSH documentation.

To add excluded recursors, a recursor timeout, or handlers to the BOSH DNS release, do the following:

  1. Select BOSH DNS Config. Bosh dns config
  2. (Optional) In Excluded Recursors, enter a list of prohibited recursor addresses.
  3. (Optional) In Recursor Timeout, enter a time limit for contacting the connected recursors.

    Note: This time limit must include one of the Go parse duration time units. For example, entering 5s sets the timeout limit to five seconds. For more information about supported time units, see func ParseDuration in the Go Programming Language documentation.

  4. (Optional) In Handlers, enter an array of custom domain handlers in JSON format. For example:
        [
          {
            "cache": {
              "enabled": true
            },
            "domain": "example.com",
            "source": {
              "type": "http",
              "url": "http://example.endpoint.local"
            }
          }
        ]
        
  5. Click Save.

  5. Select TCP or UDP from the Transport Protocol dropdown. This selection determines which transport protocol is used to send the logs to the remote server.
  6. (Optional) Select the Enable TLS checkbox to send encrypted logs to remote server with TLS. After you select the checkbox, perform the following steps:
    1. Enter either the name or SHA1 fingerprint of the remote peer in Permitted Peer.
    2. Enter the SSL certificate for the remote server in SSL Certificate.

      Note: Pivotal strongly recommends that you enable TLS encryption when you are forwarding logs. Logs can contain sensitive information, such as cloud provider credentials.

  7. (Optional) Enter an integer in Queue Size. This value specifies the number of log messages held in the buffer. The default value is 100,000.
  8. (Optional) Select the checkbox to Forward Debug Logs to an external source. This option is deselected by default. If you select it, you may generate a large amount of log data.
  9. (Optional) Enter configuration details for rsyslog in the Custom rsyslog Configuration field. This field requires the rainerscript syntax.
  10. Click Save Syslog Settings.

Step 11: Resource Config Page

  1. Select Resource Config. Om resource config

  2. Adjust any values as necessary for your deployment, such as increasing the persistent disk size. Select Automatic from the dropdown to provision the amount of persistent disk predefined by the job. If the persistent disk field reads None, the job does not require persistent disk space.

    Note: Ops Manager requires a Director VM with at least 8 GB memory.

    Note: If you set a field to Automatic and the recommended resource allocation changes in a future version, Ops Manager automatically uses the updated recommended allocation.

  3. Click Save.

Step 12: (Optional) Add Custom VM Extensions
