VCSA 6.5u1, 6.5u2 & 6.7u1 Add integrated Identity Source automation

Share This:

Unfortunately there isn’t any official supported way to Automate PSC AD Integrated identity source in VCSA 6.5u1, u2 or 6.7u1
In the past in v5.5 / 6.0 or 6.5 that was possible using and however for some reason those utilities are no longer present in 6.5u1,u2 or 6.7u1 image.
For VCSA 5.5 PSC AD integrated identity source automation example using those files
Major pain point for any pod / stack build relying on orchestration! No identity source, prevents from importing users and groups and so on.
The workaround is to spin up VCSA 6.5 GA or earlier and extract:
Once done import into newly deployed PSC/VCSA (as a part of the workflow)
Syntax I’m using to built this part into Jenkins orchestration, (PSC is already joined to domain using /opt/likewise/bin/domainjoin-cli)
It throws an error after Identity source configuration but it works!!
I can use my domain creds, I can also remove this identity source using Web Client and re-add it so no stable objects there.
hopefully that help you folks
If someone found other ways to automate it please let me know!
