With the latest updates to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you now have a cool new way of launching instances. This new feature makes it easier than ever before to launch a PeopleSoft Cloud Manager instance. We received your feedback on how downloading and uploading Cloud Manager was taking too much time. I’m very happy to say that we’ve heard you, and now we have delivered a surprisingly simple solution.
Before creating the Cloud Manager instance, you should have set up your networking (VCN and subnet) and configured all required security rules.
To launch a new Cloud Manager instance, navigate to your tenancy and go to the dashboard, as shown here, or the Instances page. From the dashboard, click the option Create a VM instance.
You will now see the new pages to create an instance as shown below. Enter the name for your instance and select the availability domain (AD) in which you want to create your Cloud Manager instance.
Next step is to select the Cloud Manager image. By default, Oracle Linux 7.5 image is chosen. Click Change Image Source to search for the Cloud Manager image.
On the Browse All Images page, select the Oracle Images tab. Here you’ll find the latest Cloud Manager image for OCI. Select the image and accept the terms and restrictions after reading them. Click Select Image to use the chosen image.
Choose the Virtual Machine instance type and select a VM shape of your choice.
Select a compartment in which the Cloud Manager instance will be created. Select a VCN and a subnet for the Cloud Manager instance configuration. Click Create to deploy the instance.
There you go! Creating a Cloud Manager instance is now so easy.
Note that you still need to download the Oracle Linux Image for Cloud Manager from My Oracle Support, upload it to object storage and import as a custom image. After setting up Cloud Manager instance, continue from Downloading the Oracle Linux Image and Uploading to Object Storage step in the install guide here.
After you have the Oracle Linux image, and the Cloud Manager instance is provisioned and running, SSH into the instance and follow the instructions in the install guide to run the Cloud Manager Instance Configuration Wizard.
