We're on to Part 3. In Part 1, we deployed MicroBOSH that enables us to deploy BOSH. In Part 2, we deployed BOSH which got us used to using manifest files. The manifest rules all. This is all adapted from the official documentation located at Deploying Cloud Foundry on vSphere.
This tutorial will go over the steps it takes to deploy Cloud Foundry on vSphere. Here are the proper steps:
NOTE: This final part has not been 100% verified. The deployment of this Cloud Foundry manifest requires the following infrastructure: 72 vCPUs, 200GB of RAM, and 1 TB of storage. Of course, my home lab doesn't support this so I kept getting timeout errors during the deployment. My problem is that my vCenter server can't keep up with the deployment speed. My vCenter Server Virtual Appliance is only configured with 8GB of RAM but it needs something much beefier to be able to handle the amount of requests. I believe this is the case because my vSphere Web Client would lose connection for a few minutes and when the deployment stopped, the Web Client started responding again. If you do test out this manifest below, please confirm it by mentioning it in the comments below. I will hope to test this in a real lab environment soon.
