Before you place vCloud Connector into production use, you must prepare it for a full production environment.

1

If you have not yet replaced the self-signed certificates in your vCloud Connector server and vCloud Connector nodes, you need to do so before production use.

2

In some cases, you need to upload certificates from the command line.

3

When you add valid certificates and enable SSL for a vCloud Connector node, you must also import the corresponding Certificate Authority (CA) root certificate into the trusted keystore of the vCloud Connector server and all other vCloud Connector nodes.

4

Copy operations rely on staging storage when you copy resources between clouds. To successfully copy resources, make sure you have enough storage allocated to the vCloud Connector nodes.

5

In vCloud Connector, you can start multiple tasks at the same time. By default, vCloud Connector executes a maximum of 10 concurrent tasks per vCloud Connector node, that is, per cloud. If you specify more than 10 tasks, the first 10 tasks are executed concurrently. When a task finishes, the next one in the queue is executed.
