    Deploying a tie breaker node to an existing UnityVSA HA

    Deploy a tie breaker node to an existing UnityVSA HA using the GUI

    Procedure
    1. Launch the UnityVSA HA Deployment Utility, and select Deploy a new Tie Breaker Node to an existing Dual-SP UnityVSA deployment.
    2. Provide the IP address and login credentials for the vCenter service.
      The deployment utility automatically discovers the UnityVSA HA managed by the specified vCenter.
    3. Select the UnityVSA for which to deploy a Tie Breaker Node (TBN).
    4. Enter the name of the TBN VM, and then select the template, host, and datastore to use for the TBN.
    5. Review your choices and click Deploy.

    --password value --tbnfile value --tbnname <value> --hosttbn value 
    ---datastoreprivatetbn value --hb0net value --hb1net value

    Deploying a TBN on an existing UnityVSA HA using an existing switch

    The following example deploys a TBN called tbn1 on an existing UnityVSA:

                          UnityVSADeployUtilityCLI 
    --hypervisor 10.244.236.244 
    --username admin 
    --password admin123 
    --file unityvsa/tbn.ova 
    --tbnfile tbn1
