Using the VMware Cloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal, you cannot change the allocation model for an organization virtual data center (VDC), but you can change the allocation settings for the allocation model that you specified during the creation of the organization VDC.

Note: By using the VMware Cloud Director API, you can convert the allocation model of any organization VDC. Alternatively, using the Service Provider Admin Portal, you can convert the non-Flex VDC into a Flex VDC by publishing an incompatible compute policy to the VDC.


  1. From the top navigation bar, select Resources and click Cloud Resources.
  2. In the left panel, click Organization VDCs, and click the name of the target organization virtual data center.
  3. On the Allocation tab, in the upper-right corner, click Edit.
  4. Edit the allocation model settings, and click Save.
