Requirements

Step 1 - Clone the VMware Event Broker Appliance Git repository

git clone https://github.com/vmware-samples/vcenter-event-broker-appliance.git

Step 2 - Edit the photon-builder.json file to configure the vSphere endpoint for building the VMware Event Broker Appliance

{
  "builder_host": "192.168.30.10",
  "builder_host_username": "root",
  "builder_host_password": "VMware1!",
  "builder_host_datastore": "vsanDatastore",
  "builder_host_portgroup": "VM Network"
}

Note: If you need to change the default root password on the VMware Event Broker Appliance, take a look at photon-version.json

Step 3 - Start the build by running the build script

./build.sh

If you wish to automatically deploy the VMware Event Broker Appliance after successfully building the OVA, please take a look at the script samples located in the test directory.
