You can register the Application Services 6.1 appliance after the server data migration, and in certain situations the migration process migrates an existing registration. If you do not register the appliance, you cannot log in as a tenanted user or perform other normal operations.

If the vCloud Application Director 6.0.1 appliance was registered to a former vCloud Automation Center 6.0.1 instance, and that former 6.0.1 instance has migrated to become the associated vCloud Automation Center 6.1 instance, then the migration process migrates the registration.

If you have an Application Director 6.0.1 appliance registered to a vCloud Automation Center 6.0.1 instance and you are migrating or upgrading them both to their respective 6.1 versions, upgrade the vCloud Automation Center 6.0.1 instance in place first. When you have successfully upgraded the vCloud Automation Center 6.0.1 instance to vCloud Automation Center 6.1, then upgrade the Application Director 6.0.1 appliance to Application Services 6.1.

You use the darwin CLI register-vcac-server command to register the Application Services 6.1 appliance to a vCloud Automation Center 6.1 instance.

You can use the darwin CLI list-vcac-info command to display server connection details, including whether the server is registered.
