      Epic Goal

      As an OpenShift infrastructure owner I need to deploy OCP on vSphere with the installer-provisioned infrastructure workflow and configure my own load balancers

      Why is this important?

      Customers want to use their own load balancers and IPI comes with built-in LBs based in keepalived and haproxy. 

      Acceptance Criteria

      • CI - MUST be running successfully with tests automated
      • Release Technical Enablement - Provide necessary release enablement details and documents.
      • Documentation

      Previous Work

      This has been tested successfully https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1986964#c2 (needs docs update and QE)

      OSP and bare metal IPI already include this option:



      Bare Metal epic in 4.8: KNIDEPLOY-4421

      OSP epic in 4.7: OSASINFRA-2085

      We expect to be able to add the same to vSphere without code changes.
