You may find that you require more resources to host your data services. DMS allows you to add additional vSphere Clusters to your installation at any time after deployment.
Adding infrastructure to your running Data Management for VMware Tanzu installation is similar to the same task performed during deployment: the Organization Administrator deploys a new Agent VM and onboards the Agent with DMS.
These procedures are typically performed by a Data Management for VMware Tanzu user in the Organization Administrator role.
Perform the following procedure to add infrastructure to your Data Management for VMware Tanzu installation:
Prepare to Onboard the Agent by ensuring that:
The Agent VM
/etc/hosts file includes an entry similar to the following:
<Agent Appliance vCenter-IP> company_vc.vsphere.local
rootlogin credentials for the newly-deployed Agent VM.
Validate that the infrastructure was added successfully by examining its Status (should be Online) and using the infrastructure (provision a Service Instance).
If you run into an issue during Agent onboarding, you must delete the infrastructure and re-start the deployment and onboarding process.
Perform the following procedure to delete a misconfigured infrastructure:
Delete the Agent VM from vCenter.
Log in to the Data Management for VMware Tanzu console.
Select Infrastructures from the left navigation pane.
This action displays the Infrastructures view, a table that lists the currently onboarded infrastructure.
Examine the infrastructures listed in the table, identify the infrastructure that you want to delete, and navigate to that table row.
Click the infrastructure Agent VM IP.
The infrastructure information Details tab displays.
Click the INFRA ACTIONS button located in the upper right-hand corner of the view, and select Delete from the pop-up menu.
The Confirmation dialog displays.
If you are certain that you want to delete the infrastructure, click CONFIRM.
