You can specify the system settings that control how vCloud Director interacts with vSphere and NSX Manager.

The configuration process creates a folder in the attached vCenter Server system for vCloud Director to use and specifies an installation ID to use when you create MAC addresses for virtual NICs.


  1. Type a name for the vCloud Director vCenter Server folder in the System name field.
  2. Use the Installation ID field to specify the installation ID for this installation of vCloud Director.

    If a datacenter includes multiple installations of vCloud Director, each installation must specify a unique installation ID.
