This article is part of a series for configuring PSC HA, for the main article, see Configuring Platform Service Controller HA in vSphere 6.5 (2147018).

Configuring PSC HA 6.5

 To configure the PSCs for load balancing, run updateSSOConfig.py and updateLsEndpoint.py scripts:

Notes:
  • The updateSSOConfig.py script updates information local to each PSC and must be ran on all PSCs in the HA instance.
  • The updateLsEndpoint.py script updates the ServiceRegistration Endpoints in VMDir and only needs to be ran on one of the PSCs in the HA instance.
Running the updateSSOConfig.py script
  1. Connect to the PSC appliance and log in with root credentials.
  2. Type shell to access the Bash shell.
  3. Navigate to /usr/lib/vmware-sso/bin with this command:

    cd /usr/lib/vmware-sso/bin

  4. Run this command:

    python updateSSOConfig.py --lb-fqdn=psc-ha-vip

    For example:

    python updateSSOConfig.py --lb-fqdn=loadbalancer.vmware.com

  5. Repeat these steps on remaining PSCs.
Running the updateLsEndpoint.py script
  1. Connect to the PSC appliance and log in with root credentials.
  2. Type shell to access the Bash shell.
  3. Navigate to /usr/lib/vmware-sso/bin with this command:

    cd /usr/lib/vmware-sso/bin

  4. Run this command:

    python UpdateLsEndpoint.py --lb-fqdn=psc-ha-vip.domain.com --user=administrative_user --password=password

    For example:

    python UpdateLsEndpoint.py --lb-fqdn=psc-ha-vip.domain.com --user=administrator@vsphere.local --password=VMware123$

    Note: Perform these step on a single PSC node only.
