You can register vCloud Director with the vCenter Servers it uses.

After you register vCloud Director, it appears as an extension in the vSphere Client Soultions Manager tab. In addition, the vSphere Client sets the Managed By property for vCloud Director-managed virtual machines, which protects those virtual machines from being modified using the vSphere Client.


  1. Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click vCenters in the left pane.
  2. Right-click the vCenter Server name and select Refresh.
  3. Click Yes.
