The Connected Amazon VPC contains your SDDC and all its networks. Information about this VPC, including the active ENI, VPC subnet, and VPC ID, is available on the Networking & Security tab.
About the Connected VPC
VMware Cloud on AWS uses AWS account linking and AWS CloudFormation to obtain the permissions it needs to access a customer AWS account. When the accounts are linked, VMware Cloud on AWS runs a CloudFormation template that creates IAM roles and grants permissions for several VMware accounts to assume those roles. The role names are listed on the SDDC's Connected Amazon VPC page. Details about those roles and permissions are published in AWS Roles and Permissions in the VMware Cloud on AWS Operations Guide.
- VMware Cloud on AWS will be unable to add, replace, or remove hosts in the SDDC management cluster.
- VMware Cloud on AWS will be unable to update the main route table when routes change or the active NSX-T Edge changes hosts during an upgrade. This can break connectivity between the SDDC and native AWS services. See Routing Between Your SDDC and the Connected VPC for details.
- The affected organization will no longer be able to deploy SDDCs linked to that account.
