You can register an NSX-T Manager instance with VMware Cloud Director, so that VMware Cloud Director can use its network resources. A provider virtual data center can use network resources either from NSX Data Center for vSphere or from NSX-T Data Center.


  1. From the top navigation bar, under Resources, click Infrastructure Resources.
  2. In the left pane, click NSX-T Managers and click Add.
  3. If you have a multisite VMware Cloud Director deployment, from the Site drop-don menu, select the site to which you want to add this NSX-T Manager instance, and click Next.
  4. Enter a name and, optionally, a description for the NSX-T Manager instance in VMware Cloud Director.
  5. Enter the URL of the NSX-T Manager instance.
    For example, https://FQDN_or_IP_address.
  6. Enter the user name and password of the NSX-T Manager administrator account.
  7. Click Save.
