  1. Enter cd '.\Desktop\UAG Resources' then press ENTER.
  2. Enter .\uagdeploy.ps1 .\uag-Tunnel.ini VMware1! VMware1! false false no then press ENTER.
    The first VMware1! is the root password for the UAG appliance
    The second VMware1! is the admin password for the REST API management access
    The first false is to NOT skip the validation of signature and certificate
    The second false is to NOT skip SSL verification for the vSphere connection
    The no is to not join the VMware CEIP program
  3. Enter [email protected]! as the password for the SSLcert and SSLcertAdmin fields when prompted.
  4. Enter VMware1! as the password for your Workspace ONE UEM administrator account (Your VLP Email Address) to allow Unified Access Gateway to be obtain the VMware Tunnel Settings from Workspace ONE UEM.

To avoid password request for the certificate, remove the pfxCerts values and provide a PEM certificate, set the pemCerts and pemPrivKey for the SSLCert and SSLCertAdmin sections of the INI file.
