Install a vCloud Connector node for every vSphere instance you want to connect to vCloud Connector.

2

Configure on-premise nodes.

3

Configure the vCloud Connector server.

Register on-premise nodes with the server.

b

Register the vCloud Air vCC node, which is already installed by VMware, with your on-premise vCloud Connector server.

c
