If the connection information for a registered NSX-V Manager instance changes, or if you want to change its name and description in VMware Cloud Director, you can modify its settings.

You can modify the settings that you configured when adding the NSX-V Manager instance. See (Optional) Add the Associated NSX Manager Instance to VMware Cloud Director.


  1. From the primary left navigation panel, select Resources, and from the page top navigation bar, select Infrastructure Resources.
  2. In the left pane, click vCenters and click the name of the vCenter instance that is associated with the target NSX-V Manager instance.
  3. In the upper-right corner of the NSX-V Manager Info section, click Edit.
  4. Modify the NSX-V Manager hostname and administrator credentials, and click Save.
  5. (Optional) To enable cross-virtual data center networking for the virtual data centers backed by this vCenter instance, turn on the toggle, and then enter the control VM properties and a name for the network provider scope.
    The control VM properties are used for deploying an appliance on the NSX-V Manager instance for cross-virtual data center networking components, such as a universal router.
    Parameter Description
    Resource Pool Path The hierarchical path to a specific resource pool in the vCenter instance, starting from the cluster, Cluster/Resource_Pool_Parent/Target_Resource . For example, TestbedCluster1/mgmt-rp.

    As an alternative, you can enter the Managed Object Reference ID of the resource pool. For example, resgroup-1476.

    Datastore Name The name of the datastore to host the appliance files. For example, shared-disk-1.
    Management Interface The name of the network in vCenter or port group used for the HA DLR management interface. For example, TestbedPG1.
    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 Sub-Provider and Tenant Guide.
