You can create a vCloud Director server group by installing the vCloud Director software of one or more Linux servers. Installation and configuration of the first group member creates a response file that you use to configure additional members of the group.

This procedure applies to new installations only. If you are upgrading an existing vCloud Director installation, see Upgrading vCloud Director.
Important: Mixed vCloud Director installations on Linux and vCloud Director appliance deployments in one server group are unsupported.


What to do next

Use the system-setup command of the cell management tool to initialize the server group's database with a system administrator account and related information. See Configure a vCloud Director Installation.
