Terraform VMware Cloud Director Supplier v3.12.0

Terraform VMware Cloud Director Supplier v3.12.0 is obtainable, introducing many new options and enhancements.

Introducing the Container Service Extension (CSE) Kubernetes Cluster useful resource and information supply

In the course of the previous releases of the supplier, we gathered an excellent quantity of suggestions from the neighborhood, and we understood that utilizing Runtime Outlined Entities to create, replace and handle a Kubernetes cluster was typically difficult and never trivial, because it required a deep understanding of the CSE internal workings.

This launch entails an enormous step ahead for CSE customers, by offering a new useful resource and information supply vcd_cse_kubernetes_cluster, to summary the Kubernetes cluster authors from coping with the complexity of the generic strategies offered within the now deprecated Kubernetes Cluster administration information.

The brand new vcd_cse_kubernetes_cluster useful resource seems like this:

Readers will observe that the accessible arguments of this useful resource are pretty much like the choices accessible in UI when making a Kubernetes cluster with the wizard. All of the RDE schemas, RDE Varieties, and YAML recordsdata will not be used explicitly anymore.

Likewise, customers will expertise a extra snug mechanism to replace their clusters, as they received´t want to govern JSON recordsdata both. The useful resource helps all of the updateable components which can be additionally achievable utilizing the UI: Resize the management aircraft, the employee swimming pools, allow/disable the node well being examine, and switch off the “auto-repair” flag (4.1.0 solely).

This new useful resource is obtainable for CSE variations 4.2.1, 4.2.0, 4.1.1(a) and 4.1.0. It additionally helps importing present clusters, for those that had been utilizing the generic strategy emigrate their present ones, and customers can even learn present clusters with the info supply.

Including assist for Container Service Extension (CSE) 4.2.0 and 4.2.1

This model of the supplier updates the set up information to assist the most recent variations of CSE, 4.2.0 and 4.2.1.

As talked about within the earlier part, the Kubernetes Cluster administration information is now deprecated in favor of the brand new vcd_cse_kubernetes_cluster useful resource and information supply.

The supplier repository accommodates now all of the RDE Kind schemas required for CSE 4.2.x and a few instance configurations for each 4.2.0 and 4.2.1 (as they differ in configuration values resembling CAPVCD model, CPI model and CSI model).

Different notable modifications and enhancements

Consolidating VM disks on creation to assist overriding template disks

A frequent person requested lacking performance was overriding disk sizes in quick provisioned VDCs. Terraform supplier v3.12.0 provides new area consolidate_disks_on_create in each assets vcd_vapp_vm and vcd_vm. When enabled, it can consolidate disks throughout VM creation. It might be helpful by itself, nevertheless it additionally permits overriding template disks when creating VMs in quick provisioned VDCs.

VM Copy assist

Each VM assets vcd_vapp_vm and vcd_vm get new area copy_from_vm_id that can be utilized to create a VM from already present one as a substitute of counting on catalog template or an empty VM.

Creating vApp templates from vApps or standalone VMs

The final bit that ranges up VM management is that useful resource vcd_catalog_vapp_template introduces an choice to seize vApp templates from present vApps or standalone VMs. One can use a brand new capture_vapp block that accepts supply vApp ID. Moreover, the vcd_vapp_vm and vcd_vm assets and information sources expose vapp_id attributes that may be specified as a supply in capture_vapp.source_id. That is particularly helpful for standalone VMs which have hidden vApps.

Route commercial configuration for routed Org VDC networks

Route commercial toggle area route_advertisement_enabled in useful resource vcd_network_routed_v2 that enables customers to allow route commercial per routed community, which works along with IP House route commercial
