You can publish a dedicated vCenter Server to a tenant and make it visible through the vCloud Director Tenant Portal. By default, one vCenter Server should be published only to one tenant.
By default, an SDDC is a vCenter Server instance that you dedicate to a single tenant by publishing the corresponding dedicated vCenter Server instance only to its organization. The tenant does not share the dedicated vCenter Server instance resources with other tenants. Publishing a dedicated vCenter Server instance to multiple tenants violates the tenancy boundaries. However, sometimes a tenant must have access to multiple dedicated vCenter Server instances. In these cases, you can publish a dedicated vCenter Server instance to multiple tenants.
- Verify that you have at least one vCenter Server instance with enabled tenant access in your vCloud Director environment. See Managing Dedicated vCenter Server Instances and Proxies.
- From the main menu (), select vSphere Resources.
- In the left panel, click vCenters.
- Select a vCenter Server with enabled tenant access.
The vCenter Server instances with enabled tenant access have a Dedicated value in the Usage column.
- Click Manage Tenants.
- Select the tenant or tenants to which you want to publish the vCenter Server instance.
Deselecting a tenant from the list, unpublishes the vCenter Server.
- Click Save.
What to do next
To enable users to access the dedicated vCenter Server instances and the proxies from the vCloud Director Tenant Portal, you must publish the CPOM extension plug-in to their organizations. See Publish or Unpublish a Plug-in from an Organization.
