You can specify the system settings that control how vCloud Director interacts with vSphere and vShield Manager or NSX Manager.

The configuration process creates a folder in the attached vCenter Server system for vCloud Director to use and specifies an installation ID to use when you create MAC addresses for virtual NICs.


Type a name for the vCloud Director vCenter Server folder in the System name field.


Use the Installation ID field to specify the installation ID for this installation of vCloud Director.

If a datacenter includes multiple installations of vCloud Director, each installation must specify a unique installation ID.
