For every vSphere cloud that you want to use with the Stretch Deploy command, you must register the vShield Manager that is associated with vSphere in the vCloud Connector Server Admin Web console. This enables vCloud Connector to get networking information about the vSphere cloud.

You have installed vCloud Connector (Server and Nodes). A vCloud Connector Node is installed and configured in the vSphere cloud. That Node is registered with the vCloud Connector Server. The vSphere cloud is version 5.1 and is associated with vShield Manager 5.1.2.

Go to the vCloud Connector Server Admin Web console at https://<vCC_Server_IPaddress>:5480.

Log on as admin. The default password is vmware.

Click the Nodes tab.

All vCloud Connector Nodes registered with the vCloud Connector Server are displayed.

Locate the appropriate Node (the Node that is installed on the vSphere cloud you want to use with the Stretch Deploy command), then click the gears icon next to that entry, and select Stretch Deploy Settings.
