Attach a vCenter Server to make its resources available for use with vCloud Director. After you attach a vCenter Server, you can assign its resource pools, datastores, and networks to a provider virtual datacenter.

An instance of VMware NSX ™ is installed and configured for vCloud Director. For more information, see the VMware vCloud Director Installation and Configuration Guide.


Open the Attach New vCenter wizard to start the process of attaching a vCenter Server to vCloud Director.


To attach a vCenter Server to vCloud Director, you must provide connection information and a display name for the vCenter Server.


VMware vCloud Director requires VMware NSX ™ to provide network services. Each VMware® vCenter™ you attach to vCloud Director requires its own instance of NSX manager.


Before you attach the new vCenter Server, review the settings you entered.
