Add a vCD Cloud

To add a vCD cloud follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to Admin > Clouds. This brings you to the Clouds page. If you, or another tenant admin in your tenant, have already added clouds to your tenant, they will be listed here. Click the Add Cloud link in the upper right.

  2. After clicking Add Cloud, the Add Cloud dialog box is displayed. Enter the cloud name, select the cloud provider, then click Next.

  3. After clicking Next, the second page of the Add Clouds dialog box, Connectivity Settings, appears. Set the toggle switches to configured the Cloud Connectivity settings.

    • When adding a private VM cloud in the in the Workload Manager or Cost Optimizer UI, the second page of the Add Clouds dialog box, Connectivity Settings, appears with a two toggles displayed:

      • Worker VMs Directly Connect with CloudCenter Suite

      • VMs Directly Connect with CloudCenter Suite

    • Setting either of these toggles to No implies you will install Cloud Remote for each region of this cloud. This also causes a third toggle to appear: CloudCenter Suite Directly Accessible from Cloud Remote. 

    • Follow the table below for guidance on setting these toggles.

      Note
