You can add, delete, and modify multiple data centers in the IaaS config pane of the BOSH Director tile. This allows you to spread instances across regions without having to deploy and manage multiple VMware Tanzu Operations Manager foundations.

You can only have multiple data centers with vSphere and OpenStack.

Add a new IaaS config

When you have only one IaaS config, you do not see a list of IaaS configs when you select the IaaS configs pane. Instead, you see the form to the one config and an option to add more.

To add a new IaaS config:

  1. Click Add vCenter Config or Add OpenStack Config.

    vCenter Config pane; Add vCenter Config button

  2. Enter a unique Name for your config.

  3. Complete the rest of the form.

  4. Click Save.

  5. Go to the Create Availability Zones pane.

  6. Create one or more AZs and associate them to your IaaS config with the IaaS Configuration field.

  7. Click Save.

Modify an IaaS Config

To edit one of multiple IaaS configs:

  1. Go to the list of configs by selecting the IaaS config pane.

    You can edit the vCenter Configs from the List of vCenter Configs pane.

  2. Click the pencil icon beside the vCenter Config you want to change.

  3. Edit the text boxes you want to change.

  4. Click Save.

Delete an IaaS Config

To delete your IaaS config:

  1. From the BOSH Director tile, go to the Create Availability Zones pane.

  2. Click the trash can icon to disassociate each AZ with your IaaS config. To know which AZs are associated, expand each AZ and see IaaS Configuration.

    Tanzu Operations Manager does not allow you to delete your first AZ or your first IaaS config. Your first AZ is always associated with your first IaaS config.

  3. Click Save

  4. Go to the IaaS config pane.
