Add Yandex Compute VM hostprovider
This topic shows how to add the Yandex Compute VM hostprovider, which allows to create multiple virtual machines in the Yandex.Cloud.
Before adding the Yandex Compute VM hostprovider, make sure that:
The Folder exists in the Yandex.Cloud.
The subnet is created in the Yandex.Cloud.
ADCM can establish the connection to the specified subnet in the Yandex.Cloud.
The user that creates the virtual machine has all necessary rights.
If automatic Red Hat registration is required for virtual machines using RHEL, you should have:
A subscription to Red Hat services and the corresponding organization ID.
A configured Red Hat activation key.
In comparison with the Yandex.Cloud console, the Yandex Compute VM hostprovider does not support the configuring of:
Static IP addresses.
Additional network adapters.
A typical installation sequence for the Yandex Compute VM hostprovider includes the following steps.
Hostprovider distributions for ADCM come in bundles. Regarding the Yandex Compute VM hostprovider, a bundle is a regular archive that includes a description and logic to interact with the Yandex.Cloud.
The steps for downloading a bundle are given below:
Go to the Arenadata Cluster Manager product website and click Download.Switching to the Arenadata Cluster Manager downloading page
Another way — go to https://network.arenadata.io/ and choose Arenadata Cluster Manager.
On the next page, download a required bundle. Yandex Compute VM hostprovider bundles are called Yandex Compute VM Provider Bundle.
To upload a bundle to ADCM, follow these steps in the ADCM web interface:
Open the BUNDLES tab and click Upload bundle.
Select the downloaded bundle in the Open File Dialog.Switching to uploading a bundleSwitching to uploading a bundle
As a result of the performed actions, the uploaded bundle is displayed at the BUNDLES tab.The result of successful uploading a bundle
To add a new hostprovider to ADCM on the base of the uploaded bundle, follow these steps in the ADCM web interface:
Open the HOSTPROVIDERS tab and click Create provider.Creating a new hostprovider
In the opened window:
Filling in the new hostprovider parameters
Select the uploaded bundle in the Bundle field.
Select the desired version of the bundle in the Version field. Several versions become available in the case of different versions of the same bundle being uploaded. By default, the latest version is displayed.
Enter the hostprovider name in the Hostprovider name field.
Enter the hostprovider description in the Description field, if necessary.
As a result of the performed actions, the created hostprovider is displayed at the HOSTPROVIDERS tab.The result of successful adding a hostprovider
In order to configure the access to the cloud, perform the following actions:
Open the HOSTPROVIDERS tab, find the row with a desired hostprovider, and click the gear icon in the Config column.Switching to configuring the hostprovider
In the next window set the Advanced flag, fill in the necessary parameters, and click Save.Configuring the hostprovider

A target folder for new virtual machines, for example
b1gotqhf08176hh183dn. Can be copied from the Id column in the folders list of the Yandex.Cloud
A target subnet for new virtual machines, for example
b0cccgrn656k0nixi92a. To get the
Subnet IDvalue, open the Virtual Private Cloud service in the Yandex.Cloud console, click on the desired network in the Cloud networks section, and copy the value of the Id column from the row that contains the desired subnet in the list of subnets that opens
A target availability zone for new virtual machines, for example
ru-central1-c. Every zone corresponds to the specific data center . To get the
Zonevalue, open the Virtual Private Cloud service in the Yandex.Cloud console, click on the desired network in the Cloud networks section, and copy the value of the Zone column from the row that contains the desired subnet in the list of subnets that opens
A list of OpenSSH keys with the
user@hostnamedata in the end. When adding virtual machines, the users list is parsed from this field. Every user is created with the corresponding key
Active operations limit timeout
A timeout activated when the quota of simultaneously performed operations is exceeded (resulting in errors returned by the Yandex.Cloud gPRC). If empty, the timeout is not activated. If
0, the waiting time is unlimited. Any positive integer in the field equals the waiting time, during which the operation should move from the queue to the execution stage. Measured in seconds
The default labels that are used for all created VMs. Should be specified in the

The organization ID that is provided at subscribing to Red Hat services. This ID is available in the Red Hat client portal. Should be filled in simultaneously with the
Activation keyfield, if automatic Red Hat registration is required for virtual machines using RHEL. The field is available in the 2.15 bundle version or later
An activation key that is configured in the Red Hat client portal. Should be filled in simultaneously with the
