As an SDDC administrator, you use the information in the VMware Cloud Foundation Administration document to understand how to administer and operate your VMware Cloud Foundation system.

An administrator of a VMware Cloud Foundation system performs tasks such as:
  • Manage certificates and passwords.
  • Add capacity to your system.
  • Configure and provision workload domains.
  • Manage provisioned workload domains.
  • Troubleshoot issues and prevent problems across the physical and virtual infrastructure.
  • Perform lifecycle management of the VMware Cloud Foundation software components.
Note: Perform all VMware Cloud Foundation operations in the SDDC Manager UI. Do not use the vSphere Client or VMware Host Client to modify or delete resources which VMware Cloud Foundation has deployed and configured, unless specifically instructed to do so in the VMware Cloud Foundation documentation.

See the Getting Started with VMware Cloud Foundation document for a high-level overview of the VMware Cloud Foundation product and the VMware Cloud Foundation Deployment Guide for information on deploying the product.
