Hi, Today, I want to create a Provider VCD in the vCloud Director.
What is a provider VCD?
The provider VDC is an abstraction of a vSphere cluster or a resource pool.
A provider virtual data center (VDC) provides resources to a provider.
To make vSphere compute, memory, and storage resources available to vCloud Director, you create a provider VDC.
For network resources, a provider VDC can use NSX-T Data Center.
• Creating a provider VDC is a system administrator task.
• The provider VDC can be created only from the provider portal.
• Provider VDCs are linked to vCenter Server clusters or resource pools.
Create a resource pool in your vCenter server.
1-Log into https://vCloud_IP/provider –> Resources –>Provider VDCs –> NEW
2- Enter a name and description for the new provider VCD.
3- Select a vCenter server to provide resource pools for this provider VDC.
4- Select the available resource pool that you created before in the vCenter server.
5- Select storage policies this provider VDC will offer.
6- Choose a network pool option for creating this provider VDC.
7- Review and click on the finish button.
