Building a Windows Azure Pack 2013 for Windows Server lab using PowerShell Deployment Toolkit (PDT).
Rob Willis over at the Building Clouds blog on TechNet released an example configuration for Windows Azure Services several months ago, but I haven’t seen an example posted for the recently released Windows Azure Pack 2013 for Windows Server.
Here are all the new Windows Azure Pack 2013 roles available in PDT.
Using the attached set of PDT files, you can build a fully functional Windows Azure Pack 2013 lab, including all integrations to Service Provider Foundation, Orchestrator, App Controller, Virtual Machine Manager and Operations Manager to enable all charge back/show back capabilities that are now included in the Windows Azure Pack.
This particular environment is deployed to 6 virtual machines and should function well on systems with at least 32GB of RAM. In a proof of concept, or production environment, you would want to spread the roles out further to allow for scale and security.
- WAPDC01 – Domain Controller
- WAPOM01 – Operations Manager, OMDB, OMDW and Report Server
- WAPSCO01 – Orchestrator, Service Provider Foundation and Windows Azure Admin roles
- WAPSQL01 – DB for all roles except Operations Manager
- WAPTenant01 – Windows Azure Service Tenant roles
- WAPVMM01 – Virtual Machine Manager and App Controller
I had the best luck connecting to the various sites using DC01. Here are the WAP links
- AdminSite – https://wapsco01:30091
- ConfigSite – https://wapsco01:30101
- TenantSite – https://waptenant:30081
During the course of testing these deployments, I discovered several minor bugs in the current release of PDT that Rob has already fixed and are included in this download. I’m sure as time permits, Rob will be releasing an update on the Building Clouds blog as well.
Once you have deployed the Windows Azure Pack, you will still need to deploy a private cloud to enable Windows Azure Pack, so I have included links below to help you get started!
