After installing and configuring
VMware Cloud Director Availability, as a service provider you can perform management and administrative tasks. These tasks include changes to the provisioned environment and routine administration and maintenance procedures.
Network Settings Configuration After completing a VMware Cloud Director Availability appliance deployment, as a system administrator you can modify the network settings of the appliance by using the management interface.
Certificates Management When the SSL certificates are about to expire, the service provider can renew or replace the certificates of the VMware Cloud Director Availability services and the certificates in the remaining disaster recovery infrastructure.
Manage the Accessible Provider VDCs By default, VMware Cloud Director Availability can access all provider virtual data centers (VDCs) that the VMware Cloud Director instance manages. As a service provider, you can manage the accessible provider VDCs for each VMware Cloud Director Availability instance.
Managing Connections Between Cloud Sites Cloud sites management includes establishing and re-establishing trust between sites. After you initiate pairing from the local site and complete the pairing from the remote site, VMware Cloud Director Availability establishes a trust between the two cloud sites. Re-establish the trust after upgrading VMware Cloud Director Availability, after replacing the Cloud Service certificate, or after registering additional Replicator Service instances.
Managing Public Administrative Access to VMware Cloud Director Availability By default, VMware Cloud Director Availability restricts the administrative sessions to all services when originating from public networks. As a service provider, you can allow the administrative access from public networks.
Stretching On-Premises Layer 2 Networks in the Cloud During on-premises to the cloud migrations, to allow network connectivity between already migrated and not yet migrated virtual machines as in the same network segment, stretch the on-premises networks across the cloud site. Layer 2 VPN (L2 VPN) stretches the L2 networks across the sites.
Events and Notifications You can monitor the events that VMware Cloud Director Availability generates either by using a syslog server, or in VMware Cloud Director, or by using email delivery for the notifications.
Bandwidth Throttling In VMware Cloud Director Availability, you can set a global limit for the total incoming replication traffic from all remote cloud and on-premises sites. You can also configure a limit for the replication data traffic from on-premises sites to the cloud site. Throttling the network bandwidth can prevent the network saturation and avoid overloading of the management connections with replication data traffic sharing the network infrastructure.
Maintenance Perform maintenance operations on a datastore or on a Replicator Service instance and rebalance replications across Replicator Service instances.
Monitoring and Troubleshooting In the disaster recovery environment, you can diagnose and correct problems related to VMware Cloud Director Availability services operation, logging, and others.
