You can disable a provider virtual datacenter to prevent the creation of organization virtual datacenters that use the provider virtual datacenter resources.

When you disable a provider virtual datacenter, vCloud Director also disables the organization virtual datacenters that use its resources. Running vApps and powered on virtual machines continue to run, but you cannot create or start additional vApps or virtual machines.


  1. Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Provider VDCs in the left pane.
  2. Right-click the provider virtual datacenter name and select Enable or Disable.
