If you have six or fewer hosts in your rack, your Cloud Foundation deployment is based on the consolidated architecture. Since you do not have enough hosts to create a workload domain, you can utilize part of the capacity on the management domain by creating workload VMs and adding them to the management domain. In order to isolate the workload VMs from the Cloud Foundation management VMs, you must create these workload VMs in the Compute-ResourcePool, which is automatically created on the management domain during bring-up.

For more information on architecture models, see the VMware Cloud Foundation Overview and Bring-Up Guide.
