Provide names for the VI workload domain and organization and select whether the VI workload domain will use vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM) images or baselines.
Verify that you have met the prerequisites described in About VI Workload Domains.
- Type a name for the VI workload domain, such as sfo01. The name must contain between 3 and 20 characters.
It is good practice to include location information in the name since resource object names (such as host and vCenter names) are generated based on the VI workload domain name.
- (Optional) Type a name for the organization that requested or will use the virtual infrastructure, such as Finance. The name must contain between 3 and 20 characters.
- If you want to use vSphere Lifecycle Manager images as the update method for the VI workload domain, select Manage clusters in this workload domain using images.
If you choose not to use vSphere Lifecycle Manager images, then the VI workload domain uses vSphere Lifecycle Manager baselines. The update method that you select for the VI workload domain cannot be changed later. For more information on vSphere Lifecycle Manager images, see vSphere Lifecycle Manager Image Management.
