Deploying VSatellites

After you've carefully reviewed and completed all prerequisite steps, you're ready to deploy a VSatellite to your target computer.

Deploying a VSatellite involves 3 simple steps:

  1. Download the VSatellite installer (vsatctl) onto your target computer.
  2. Run vsatctl preflight to verify that you've met all prerequisites.
  3. Run vsatctl install to deploy your new VSatellite.


It's helpful to have both the VSatellites page open in Venafi Control Plane (Settings > VSatellites) and a command line utility connected to your target computer before you begin. You'll be using both.

To deploy a new VSatellite

  1. Sign in to TLS Protect Cloud, and then click Settings > VSatellites.

  2. On the VSatellites page, click New, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
