Create a record for a vCenter instance

Create a record for each vCenter instance in the network.

Before you begin

Role required: cloud_admin, vmware_operator


  1. Navigate to VMware Cloud > Administration > vCenter Instances.
  2. Click New.
  3. Enter the Name of an active vCenter machine and the URL to the instance, then save the record.

    The location of this vCenter is for convenience and is not used anywhere else.

  4. Click the Discover vCenter Details related link to cause the system to explore vCenter and record the relationships between the vCenter and the other VMware components.
    This action does not use the Discovery application, but performs the same type of scan. A MID Server is required for this procedure.
