Deploy and configure VMware Access Point with the GUI
VMware changed their remote access strategy in the past years by slowly replacing the VMware Security server with the Access Point. In the beginning deployment was only possible with a PowerShell script, not difficult but you couldn’t manage the device after you deployed it. VMware had a strategy, or they told us, that there was no management and the Access Point strategy was destroy and deploy. The article about deploying the VMware Access Point with the script and with two-factor authentication is found here – Deploying VMware Access Point with PowerShell – VMware Access Point Radius two-factor authentication with SafeNet (SAS) – VMware Access Point: adding static routes. Now with the GUI I decided to deploy with the GUI, one other reason was that the customer is using DHCP with reserved addresses instead of static ones. The PowerShell script needs a static IP address. So a GUI deployment it was.
Deploying the VMware Access Point
First step is to deploy the VMware Access Point in a VMware environment. This is a basic deployment and not that difficult. All the configuration is done afterwards in the GUI. First you pick the OVA file you downloaded from the VMware website.
In the above pictures you see how to deploy the VMware Access Point, there are two screens important here. At one point you select the number of network interfaces. Deploy the VMware Access Point with one, two or three NIC’s. If you don’t want any routing hassle pick one NIC.
