To update the information in the VMware Cloud Director database about the underlying vCenter Server resources, you must refresh the vCenter Server instance.

Starting with VMware Cloud Director 10.2.2, if you are using Kubernetes, when you refresh a vCenter Server instance, this results in restoring the default firewall policies and NAT rules that block the access to the Tanzu Kubernetes cluster from networks that are outside the organization virtual data center.


  1. From the top navigation bar, under Resources, click Infrastructure Resources.
  2. In the left panel, select vCenter Server Instances.
  3. Click the radio button next to the name of the target vCenter Server instance, and click Refresh.
  4. To confirm, click OK.
