The Hybrid Cloud Manager virtual machine is installed first, and it manages the installation of any other service virtual machine appliances on premises and in the cloud.

The following is a summary of the basic installation tasks. If you want to upgrade an existing deployment, see Upgrade Hybrid Cloud Manager.

1

Log into My VMware and download the Hybrid Cloud Manager OVA file from: https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?downloadGroup=HCM200&productId=343.

2

From the vSphere Web Client, install the Hybrid Cloud Manager service virtual appliance in the on-premises vCenter that connects to vCloud Air. See From vSphere to vCloud Air.

3

From the vSphere Web Client, register a vCloud Air endpoint with the Hybrid Cloud Manager plug-in. See From vCloud Air to vSphere. Registration establishes the one-to-one relationship between the on-premises Hybrid Cloud Manager and a vCloud Air virtual data center.

4

Identify the architecture you want to use. See “Choosing a Deployment Architecture”.

5

Install and configure the service virtual appliances.

For each appliance installed on premises, the installer provisions a corresponding service virtual appliance in the target vCloud Air virtual data center.

After the installation, Hybrid Cloud Manager controls both local and remote service virtual appliances. In your vCloud Air virtual data center,Hybrid Cloud Manager manages the provisioned Software-Defined WAN components as a service, so they are not editable, or even visible, in your vCloud Air virtual data center.
