The Edge Compute Stack service allows adding multiple hosts at a time by importing a CSV file. This CSV file is provided to you by the hardware vendor and allows for many Edge locations to be activated at scale.

The information in the CSV file, which is used when registering your Edge Compute Stack host must match the information displayed on the screen when the host is built.

To register multiple VMware Edge Compute Stack hosts with the Edge Compute Stack service, perform the following steps:


  • A number of deployed VMware Edge Compute Stack hosts must be built and ready at the DCUI screen displaying vendor, model, and serial number.

  • A CSV file created with the vendor, model, and serial number. For example:
