Requirements for the Cloud Controller and the Controller Node

  • You can add one or more Controller Nodes to the Cloud Controller. But, at least one Controller Node must always be running in order to turn on and turn off the cloud MediaAgent.
  • Do not use a power management enabled cloud MediaAgent as a Controller Node.
  • For a cloud MediaAgent that is deployed in Amazon, create an Amazon virtual client.

    For more information, see Amazon Configuration.

  • For a cloud MediaAgent that is deployed in Microsoft Azure, create an Azure virtual client.

    For more information, see Microsoft Azure: Configuration.

  • For a cloud MediaAgent that is deployed in VMWare or VMWare on Amazon Cloud, create a VMWare virtual client.
  • For more information, see VMWare Configuration.

    For more information, see Adding a Microsoft Azure Hypervisor.

  • When you create the virtual client for the Cloud Controller, do the following:
    • For Azure, configure an Azure application ID that is assigned to the Contributor role during the virtual client creation. Also, create a Cloud Controller that is within the same subscription as the cloud MediaAgent.

      For more information about Azure user permissions, consult the Azure documentation.

    • For Amazon, configure an Amazon user account with the "ec2:StartInstances", "ec2:StopInstances", "ec2:DescribeRegions", "ec2:DescribeAvailabilityZones", "ec2:DescribeInstances" and “ec2: GetConsoleOutput” permissions.

      If the virtual client uses IAM authentication method, then the first Controller Node should be on Amazon and have the corresponding IAM role associated. The Controller Node must be online always to perform power management operation.

      For more information about Amazon user permissions and roles, consult the Amazon documentation.

    • For VMware vCenter Hypervisor, configure an user account with the Power On and the Power Off permissions during the virtual client creation.

      For more information about VMware vCenter user permissions, see Virtual Machine - Interaction Permissions.

    • For Google Cloud, configure an user account with the Compute Instance Admin (v1) permission during the virtual client creation.

      For more information about Google Cloud user permissions, consult the Google Cloud documentation.
