The Agent VM associated with an Onboarded Cluster initially hosts only the workload of the owning/onboarding organization. The Provider Administrator user can choose to share this infrastructure with other organizations via the Data Management for VMware Tanzu console or API.

Note: The organizations share the resources at the infrastructure level only; there is no CPU, network, or storage isolation between their workloads.

Each organization sharing an infrastructure is permitted to access and manage only its own workloads in the infrastructure.

When you share infrastructure among multiple organizations:

  • The Local Repository and Cloud Repository that you configure for the Agent VM is shared across all organizations that are using the infrastructure.
  • Data Management for VMware Tanzu cannot guarantee 10 parallel deployments per organization.
  • A user from any organization can pull logs from the infrastructure.
  • All Service Instances provisioned in the Onboarded Cluster are addressed using the same fully-qualified domain name suffix. Data Management for VMware Tanzu does not support sharing infrastructure when the organizations have different domain names.

You can also remove an organization's access to an infrastructure.

Audience

These procedures are performed by a Data Management for VMware Tanzu user in the Provider Administrator role.

Sharing Infrastructure

Prerequisites

Before you share existing infrastructure with a new organization, ensure that:

  • You can identify the Agent VM IP address of the infrastructure that you want to share.
  • This infrastructure has enough resources to accommodate the projected additional Service Instance deployments.
  • You can identify the name of the organization.

Procedure

Perform the following procedure to share an existing infrastructure with a new organization:

  1. Select Infrastructures from the left navigation pane.

    This action displays the Infrastructures view, a table that lists the currently onboarded infrastructure.

  2. Examine the infrastructures listed in the table, identify the infrastructure that you want to share, and navigate to that table row.

  3. Click the infrastructure Cluster Name.

    The infrastructure information Details tab displays.

  4. Locate the Organizations section of the pane and click ADD in the upper right corner.

    The Add Organization to Share dialog displays.

  5. Use the drop-down list to select the Organization with which you want to share the infrastructure, and then click CONFIRM.

    Data Management for VMware Tanzu initiates the task and adds the organization to the table.

Removing Infrastructure Access from an Organization

When you no longer want an organization to access certain infrastructure, you remove the organization's access to the infrastructure. You can remove access from an organization only if the organization does not own any running Service Instances in the infrastructure.

Note: When you remove access to an infrastructure, the organization's users will no longer be permitted to provision new Service Instances in the infrastructure.

Prerequisites

Before you remove infrastructure access from an organization, ensure that:

  • You can identify the Agent VM IP address of the infrastructure.
  • You can identify the name of the organization.
  • The infrastructure does not host any Service Instances deployed by the organization's users. You must remove any such instances from the infrastructure.

Procedure

Perform the following procedure to remove infrastructure access from a specific organization:

  1. Select Infrastructures from the left navigation pane.

    This action displays the Infrastructures view, a table that lists the currently onboarded infrastructure.

  2. Examine the infrastructures listed in the table, identify the infrastructure that you want to share, and navigate to that table row.

  3. Click the infrastructure Cluster Name.

    The infrastructure information Details tab displays.

  4. Locate the Organizations pane.

  5. Examine the organizations listed in the table, identify the organization from which you want to remove access, and navigate to that table row.

  6. Click the three vertical dots in the Action column, and select Remove from the pop-up menu.

    The Remove Organization dialog displays.

  7. If you are certain that you want to remove the organization's access to this infrastructure, click CONFIRM.

    Data Management for VMware Tanzu initiates the task.

    Note: If the operation succeeds, the infrastructure is no longer a Service Instance deployment target for users in the organization.

    <div class="note>DMS returns an error if the organization owns any running Service Instances. If this occurs, you must notify the Organization Administrator user and inform them that they must delete the running instances.
