For any vCloud that you use with the Stretch Deploy command (your private vCloud as well as the public vCloud), you must specify Organization Administrator-level credentials for the cloud in the vCloud Connector Server Admin Web console. You do this after you install vCloud Connector.

Note

You must enter Organization Administrator-level credentials for Stretch Deploy even if you registered the vCloud Connector Node for the cloud with the same credentials.

Organization Administrator-level credentials are required so that vCloud Connector can

Configure the Edge gateway for NAT or firewall changes, if required

Create the routed vApp in the public vCloud

Configure the vApp network to establish the SSL VPN tunnel

Create a temporary vApp in the public vCloud

Deploy the VM or vApp in the public vCloud

After you have stretch deployed your VMs or vApps, you can unregister the settings. See Unregister Stretch Deploy Settings for more information.

You have installed vCloud Connector (Server and Nodes). A vCloud Connector Node is installed and configured in the vCloud. That Node is registered with the vCloud Connector Server. The vCloud is version 5.1 or higher.

1

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

2

Log on as admin. The default password is vmware.

3

Click the Nodes tab.

All Nodes registered with the vCloud Connector Server are displayed.

4

Locate the appropriate Node, then click the gears icon next to that entry, and select Stretch Deploy Settings.

5

Specify an Organization Administrator-level user name and password for the cloud.

6

Repeat for all vClouds that you want to use with Stretch Deploy.

If you had already loaded the clouds in vCloud Connector before you specified the Stretch Deploy settings described here, you need to reload the clouds for the changes to take effect. See Reload a Cloud in vCloud Connector for more information.
