Hi Guys,

I have created a metamodel and would like to start populating it with data. I have the following configuration

vContainer (Virtual Machine Template) - this defines the specification of Virtual Hardware, Applications, OS configuration, SLA

I would like to start defining vCon's (short for vContainer).

For example I would like to define vCon 1.

vCon 1 is a WebProxy, it runs Linux. It has Webmin and Apache installed on it.

I would like to do the following,

Define Webmin and Apache as separate applications using the Application metamodel I created
Define vCon 1 with custom configuration of Apache and Webmin.

Once this is defined I would like to specify 3 instances of this vCon. Each Instance will have unique configuration items like IP Address, name, vCon Instance ID. etc etc.

Can someone give me an idea or somewhere to look for this answer. I have been reading irrelivant EA documentation for days and at this point I am looking at recommending my company dump this software for something easier to use like Excel. I hate excel but atleast I know how it works and can get data in and out of it.

Just need help with this product.

Hi guys, I am completely new to Enterprise Architect. I have (or atleast I think I have) created a metadata model using Classes. The model revolves around networks, sites, nodes, vContainers (VM Templates) and applications. I was wondering now that I have built the meta model how do i actually populate it with all the different applications, vContainers, etc etc.

If you have any noob tutorial videos you can recommend I would love to know. Also, is there a way to automate parent class information from child classes? Also, is there a way I can have attributes with a firm set of types that are required to be specified. I.E. I am thinking of something like Storage Tier and having a set of numbers that link back to another set of classes that articulates what those storage levels actually are.

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated.
