    The SMTP server details to send mail notifications. If you retain the default settings, the SMTP sever details are not configured.

    SMTP Host

    SMTP PortDefaults to 465
    SMTP Auth

    Boolean setting

    • True = Authentication is required for the SMTP server.
    • False = Authentication is not required for the SMTP server.


    The mail authentication and configuration details to send mail notifications. If you retain the default settings, the mail functionality is not be configured and emails are not sent.

    Mail User

    Your email address for the SMTP server


    The password to log into the SMTP server

    From User

    The email address (no reply) to initiate emails from the CCM server

    Display NameThe name to be displayed when you initiate emails from the CCM server
    Server_info (Required)Public DNS

    DNS (or IP address) of the CCM – Used by the CCO VM to communicate with the CCM VM.

    Monitor URL

    Monitor VM's complete URL. For example, https://<MON IP address>:8443.

    • Requires HTTPS protocol.
    • Used by the CCM VM to retrieve the health status from the Monitor VM.

    Hazelcast IP

    Private IP address of the CCM VM – Used internally by the CloudCenter platform. Required for HA Mode.

    External URL

    The CloudCenter External URL for the CCM server. Required for HA Mode.


    Used by the application profile templates.

    DB Password

    CCM NON-HA appliance mode derives this information automatically from the PostgreSQL database.

    CCM HA appliance mode does not have this information as the database and the CCM must both be configured to communicate with each other. As such, you must explicitly configure the application profile templates location in the database by providing the database information.

    The default DB password = cliqr

    Be sure to change the default password immediately after your first login. See PostgreSQL Password for additional context.

    Required only if you installed Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), an optional component that is not installed in CloudCenter appliances by default.
    Rabbit Host

    The IP address or the hostname of the ESB AMQP server.

    Rabbit Port5671
    Management Server AddressThe IP address or the hostname of the CCM server.
    Notification Server AddressThe IP address or the hostname of the Notification server (ideally, the same as the CCM server).
    Trust Store PasswordThe trust store password for the ESB instance.
    Key Store PasswordThe key store password for the ESB instance.



    The CCM server's hostname – use the default if you are not making any changes.

    DBIP or Hostname

    DNS or IP of the database:

    • Local host: Default, does not include the flyway migrate configuration
    • Remote host, includes the flyway migrate configuration – see the last bullet in this row.

    Authenticated username for the database (either local or remote).


    Authenticated password for the database (either local or remote).

    Flyway Migrate

    Optional. Remote Host Configure the CCM to a remote database by providing the IP address of the remote database. When you provide the IP address, you see an additional screen to configure the flyway migrate process.

    • Yes: Flyway migration takes place.
    • No: Only the configuration files are updated.

    DB configuration is required for standalone database deployments.

    ELK_InfoELK Host

    Specify the IP address for the ELK host (Monitor VM).

    Elasticsearch PortDisplays 8881 by default.
    Logstash PortDisplays 4560 by default.
    Kibana PortDisplays 8882 by default.
    ELK UserThe default ELK Username = logreader.
    ELK PasswordThe default ELK Password is re@d0nly (zero between d and n) (change this password after the initial login – see Download Log File for additional context).
    Host IdentifierA Unique ID for the server – be sure to prefix the unique identifier with CCM_ for example, CCM_1
    Host Identifier List

    Only applies to environments using the HA mode – provide a list of comma separated unique host identifiers for all ELK/Monitor hosts in a HA setup = for example, CCM_1,CCM_2,myCCM.

    In an environment operating in HA mode, if you have two CCM instances with unique IDs configured as CCM_1,CCM_2 in their respective file, then this property should state CCM_1,CCM_2 in both CCM instances. Each CCM must be aware of the unique ID of the other CCM(s) when in HA mode.

    Config_Certs – Custom Certs MenuGenerate Certs
    • CloudCenter ID: A customer-assigned unique alphanumeric string to identify this CloudCenter deployment.
    • Company Name: The name of the company for which this certificate is being generated.
    Update CertsCerts Zip Path: Provide the path for the file. The default path is /tmp/
  3. Exit the CCM configuration wizard.

  4. Select Yes, to restart the Tomcat service for the changes to take effect.

You have successfully installed the CCM instance! You can now proceed to the next step:
