At the Review step of the wizard, review the information about the workload domain and start the creation workflow. You can also print the information or download a printable version to print later. It can take up to two hours for the domain to be created.

The Review page displays information about the resources and their configurations that are deployed when the workflow creates and deploys the virtual infrastructure for this workload domain.

The hosts that will be added to the workload domain are listed along with information such as the network pool they belong to, memory, CPU, and so on.


  1. Scroll down the page to review the information.
  2. Click Finish to begin the creation process.

    The Workload Domains page appears, and a notification is displayed letting you know that VI workload domain is being added. Click View Task Status to view the domain creation tasks and sub tasks.

    If a task fails, you can fix the issue and rerun the task. If the workload domain creation fails, contact VMware Support.


When the VI workload domain is created, it is added to the workload domains table.

The default end-state for a workload domain includes a network fabric with the following configuration

  • Two NSX-T transport zones (one for VLAN and one for overlay) for each host
  • NIOC and uplink profiles
  • Four segments (previously known as logical networks); one each for management, vSAN, vMotion, and host overlay (host TEP)
  • Some empty vDS and port groups

    Do not edit or delete these.

What to do next

Deploy and configure an NSX-T Edge cluster. See Deploying NSX-T Edge Clusters.
