vSphere VXLAN is enabled by default for new provider VDCs. A system administrator must manually enable VXLAN on a Provider VDC that was created with an older release of vCloud Director.


This operation is restricted to system administrators.

Configure VXLAN for your vCloud Director environment. See the NSX Administration Guide.


  1. Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Provider VDCs in the left pane.
  2. Right-click the Provider VDC name and select Enable VXLAN.


A VXLAN network pool is created for the Provider VDC. See VXLAN Network Pools.
