During the initial VMware Cloud Director Availability configuration, VMware Cloud Director Availability registers as a VMware Cloud Director™ plug-in and provides access to the VMware Cloud Director Availability Tenant Portal directly from the VMware Cloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal.

When you access the VMware Cloud Director Availability Tenant Portal from the VMware Cloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal, you can manage cloud and disaster recovery environments from a single user interface. The first time you access the VMware Cloud Director Availability Tenant Portal from the VMware Cloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal, you must trust the SSL certificate of the Cloud Service appliance as described in Step 5.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that your VMware Cloud Director Availability environment is running VMware Cloud Director 9.1 or later.
  • Verify that the user profile has System Administrator privileges.

Procedure

  1. In a Web browser, go to the organization service provider portal URL at https://cloud.example.com/provider/login.
  2. Log in with a VMware Cloud Director System Administrator user.
  3. From the main menu, select Cloud Director Availability.
  4. If logging in for the first time, click the https://vApp-Replication-Manager-IP-Address:8443 link.
  5. In the newly opened browser tab, to trust the SSL certificate of the Cloud Replication Management Appliance, click Accept.
    You must trust the SSL certificate of the Cloud Replication Management Appliance only when you access the VMware Cloud Director Availability Tenant Portal for the first time. After you trust the certificate, by selecting Availability from the VMware Cloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal main menu opens the VMware Cloud Director Availability Tenant Portal.
