- (Optional) То enable cross-virtual data center networking for the virtual data centers backed by this vCenter Server instance, turn on the Cross-VDC networking toggle, and enter the control VM deployment properties and a name for the network provider scope.
The control VM deployment properties are used for deploying an appliance on the NSX Manager instance for cross-virtual data center networking components like a universal router.
Option Description Network Provider Scope Corresponds to the network fault domain in the network topologies of the data center groups. For example, boston-fault1.
For information about managing cross-virtual data center groups, see the VMware Cloud Director Tenant Portal Guide.
