Cisco SD-WAN: Onboarding Controllers step by step (on-prem)

This configuration example only covers the process of installing the SD-WAN controller software images on a VMWare ESXI instance, establishing the transport and management networks for the three controllers to communicate, and ensuring that each controller has a valid certificate installed. This configuration does not go over the process of creating/applying configuration templates or adding edge devices, through vManage.

This configuration guide assumes that the following has already been setup and configured:
UCS server with at least the following hardware resources available:
1. vManage

  • 2 CPU
  • 32GB Memory
  • Disk 1: 30GB
  • Disk 2: 100GB

2. vSmart

  • 2 CPU
  • 4 GB Memory
  • Disk 1: 10.5GB (Approx. image size)

3. vBond

  • 4 CPU
  • 2GB Memory
  • Disk 1: 10.5GB (Approx. image size)

4. VMWare ESXI v6.0+ instance for managing VMs and VM networks:

  • One virtual network and switch for VM management and
  • One virtual network and switch for SD-WAN
  • Datastore(s) configured with at minimum 500GB

5. Workstation with network access to UCS server and controllers, with access to a certificate-signing server/software, such as xca.
