Recommended and tested browsers are Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox.

Accessing the TrilioVault Dashboard

Enter the TrilioVault IP or FQDN into the browser to reach the TrilioVault Appliance landing page.
User: admin Password: password
You will be prompted to change the Web-UI password on first login.
After the password has been changed you will be logged out and have to login using the new password.

Details needed for the TrilioVault Appliance configurator

Upon login into the TrilioVault Appliance, the shown page is the configurator. The configurator requires some information about the TrilioVault Appliance, RHV and Backup Storage.

TrilioVault Nodes information

The TrilioVault Appliance needs to be integrated into an existing environment to be able to operate correctly. This block asks for information about the TrilioVault Appliance operating details.
    Virtual IP Address
      The TrilioVault Appliance uses this IP address for all communication with RHV.
      Format: IP/Netmask
The TrilioVault Appliance for RHV does not yet support multi-node installations. It is an actively worked on feature, that gets integrated step by step.
    TVM Appliance IP
      The first interface in the interface list of the TrilioVault Appliance will get this IP address assigned. Further is the TrilioVault Appliance hostname set.
      Format: IP=hostname
The Virtual IP and the TVM Appliance IP can not be the same address. The configuration fails upon using the same IPs for both values.
    Name Servers
      The DNS server the TrilioVault appliance will use.
      Format: Comma separated list of IPs
    Domain Search Order
      The domain the TrilioVault Appliance will use.
      Format: Comma separated list of domain names
      Example: trilio.demo,
    NTP Servers
      NTP Servers the TrilioVault Appliance will use.
      Format: Comma separated list of NTP Servers (FQDN and IP supported)
      Timezone the TrilioVault will use.
      Format: predefined list
      Example: UTC

RHV Credentials information

The TrilioVault appliance integrates with one RHV environment. This block asks for the information required to access and connect with the RHV Cluster.
    RHV Engine URL
      URL of the RHV-Manager used to authenticate
      Format: URL (FQDN and IP supported)
      Example: https://rhv-manager.trilio.demo
A preconfigured DNS Server is required, when using FQDN. The TrilioVault Appliance local host file gets overwritten during configuration. The configuration will fail when the FQDN is not resolvable by a DNS Server.
    RHV Username
      The password to validate the RHV Username against the RHV-Manager
      Format: String
      Example: password
TheInvalid Credentials error message will be displayed when the TrilioVault Appliance cannot reach the RHV Manager or credentials given are incorrect.

Backup Storage Configuration information

This block asks for the necessary details to configure the Backup Storage.
    Backup Storage
      NFS or S3

In the case of NFS

    NFS Export
      Full path to the NFS Volume used as Backup Storage
      Format: Comma separated list of NFS paths
    NFS Options
      Options used by the TrilioVault NFS client to connect to the NFS Volume
      Format: NFS Options
      Example: nolock,soft,timeo=180,intr
    Note:- Make sure the NFS server supports the NFSv3 as Trilio Mounts the NFS share explicitly with NFSv3

In the case of S3

    Amazon or Ceph or Local Ceph
      Amazon expects to connect to AWS services
      Ceph allows connecting to any S3 bucket that is either not using SSL or a trusted SSL certificate
      Local Ceph allows connecting to any S3 that is either not using SSL or a self-signed certificate
    [Ceph and Local Ceph only] Use SSL
      Activate when the S3 endpoint is secured
    Access Key
      Access Key necessary to login into the S3 storage
      format: access key
    Secret Key
      Secret Key necessary to login into the S3 storage
      format: secret key
      example: bfAEURFGHsnvd3435BdfeF
      Configured Region for the S3 Bucket
        use us-east-1 for Ceph and Local Ceph
      format: String
      example: us-east-1
    [Ceph and Local Ceph only] Endpoint URL
      URL to be used to reach and access the provided S3 compatible storage
      format: URL
    Bucket Name
      Name of the bucket to be used as Backup target
      format: string
      example: Trilio-backup
    [Local Ceph with active SSL only] Cert
      Upload area for the certificate to be used when connecting with the S3 storage
      format: certificate

TrilioVault Certificate information

TrilioVault is integrating into the RHV Cluster as an additional service, following the RHV communication paradigms. These require that the TrilioVault Appliance is using SSL and that the RHV-Manager does trust the TrilioVault Appliance.
TrilioVault offers to possibilities how these required certificates can be provided. Either TrilioVault generates a complete fresh self-signed certificate or a certificate is provided.
In both cases is the FQDN required, to which the certificate is pointing to.
Please see below example in case of a provided certificate.
      FQDN to reach the TrilioVault Appliance
      Format: FQDN
      Example: rhv-tvm.trilio.demo
      Certificate provided by the TrilioVault appliance upon request
      Format: Certificate file
      Example: rhv-tvm.crt
    Private Key
      Private Key used to verify the provided certificate
      Format: private key file
      Example: rhv-tvm.key

TrilioVault License

It is possible to directly provide the TrilioVault Appliance with the license file that is going to be used by it.
TrilioVault will not create any workloads or backups without a valid license file.
It is not necessary to provide the License file directly through the configurator. It is also possible to provide the license afterwards through the TrilioVault License tab in the TrilioVault dashboard.
The TrilioVault License tab can also be used to verify and update the currently installed license.

Submit and Configuration

After filling out every block of the configurator, hit the submit button to start the configuration.
The configurator asks one more time for confirmation before starting.
While the configurator is running the live output from the ansible playbooks is shown. Some of the tasks can take multiple minutes until they are finished without an update to the output.
Wait until the configurator has either finished or failed.
