You can create proxies that tenants can use to access the underlying vSphere environment. You can create proxies for dedicated vCenter Server instances in vCloud Director.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. From the main menu (Menu), select vSphere Resources.
  2. In the left panel, click vCenters.
  3. Select a dedicated vCenter Server instance.
  4. On the page with detailed vCenter Server information, click the Proxies tab and click New.
  5. Enter a name, target host, and the UI URL of the new proxy.
    The target host is the host name or IP address of the component that you want vCloud Director to be a proxy for. The UI URL of the new proxy is the URL to which the vCloud Director UI directs to when the tenant opens the proxy.
  6. If you want the proxy to be visible to the tenants, toggle on the Tenant visible option.
  7. (Optional) Click Select a parent proxy and select a proxy from the list.
  8. Click Save.
