VMware Unified Access Gateway – Deploy

Release date: May 12th 2019

Welcome to my VMware Unified Access Gateway series. This topic will cover the deploying of VMware UAG with Powershell.

Prior to deployment I need to download and install VMware OVF Tool on a server/workstation with access to the vCenter. This can be downloaded from: https://www.vmware.com/support/developer/ovf/

I will be using the powershell scripts I downloaded with the OVA file and the view-uag01.ini-file I created during preparations. Although I planned for a three-nic setup, I will be deploying a two-nic setup, due to the fact that I don’t have a separate management network in my lab.

Before I start deployment in powershell I set ExecutionPolicy to unrestricted:

Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

To start the deployment I run this command:

.\uagdeploy.ps1 .\view-uag01.ini PASSWORD PASSWORD false false no

Once the UAG is deployed, I power it up and verify the IP-addresses.


I have exported my ini-file to pdf and attached here: view-uag01_ini.pdf

Now that the appliance is deployed and looking good, I can configure the UAG-settings, covered here: VMware Unified Access Gateway – Configuration
