Cloud Foundation configures the first four hosts on each physical rack as the management domain. You need at least three additional hosts in order to create a workload domain. If you do not have enough hosts to create a workload domain, you can utilize part of the capacity on the management domain by creating a workload VM and adding it to the management domain. In order to isolate the Cloud Foundation management VMs and the workload VMs, it is recommended that you create a resource pool for the workload VMs.

Procedure

  1. Login to the vSphere Web Client.
  2. Create a resource pool of the hosts in the management domain.

    See Create a Resource Pool in vSphere Resource Management.

  3. Create a workload VM.

    See Create a New Virtual Machine in vSphere Resource Management.

    Note:

    Do not move any of the Cloud Foundation management VMs into the resource pool.

  4. Move the workload VM to the resource pool.

    See Add a Virtual Machine to a Resource Pool in vSphere Resource Management.

    Note:

    Do not move any of the Cloud Foundation management VMs to the newly created resource pool.
