Once a Cloud Foundation on VxRail management workload domain is deployed during the Cloud Builder deployment phase, the cloud platform is ready for the deployment of Cloud Foundation on VxRail VI workload domains. This milestone must be completed before moving forward with any other activities with VI workload domains.
Complete the following tasks to deploy a Cloud Foundation VI workload domain:
- This will deploy a vCenter instance in the management workload domain. This vCenter instance is used to manage all VxRail clusters assigned to support the VI workload domain.
- Use the VI workload domain vCenter as the point of management during the initial build of the VxRail cluster.
- For VI workload domains serviced by NSX-V, this action will deploy the NSX-V Manager in the management workload domain and three NSX-V controllers in the VI workload domain.
- For the first VI workload domains serviced by NSX-T, this action will deploy three NSX-T Managers in the management workload domain. The NSX-T Managers will be used by all subsequent VI workload domains to be serviced by NSX-T.
