You allocate CPU and memory resources to Data Director by creating one or more resource pools from a vSphere Client connected to a vCenter Server system. From the Data Director user interface, you can then assign the resources from those resource pools to database groups and databases.

Before you create the resource pools, you must prepare a cluster. Enable the cluster for HA and DRS, and add all Data Director hosts to the cluster. See the vFabric Data Director Installation Guide for information.

Connect to the vCenter Server system by using a vSphere Client. You cannot create resource pools if the client is connected directly to a host.

Verify that you have permissions sufficient to create a resource pool.

Choose a location for the resource pool. Data Director cannot use resource pools at the vApp top level. For information about resource pools, see the vSphere Resource Management documentation .
