Allocate host names and IP addresses for all components you deploy for the virtual infrastructure and disaster recovery components of the SDDC according to this VMware Validated Design.

In Region A, allocate host names and IP addresses to the following components and configure DNS with a FQDN that maps to the IP address where defined:

  • Platform Services Controllers

  • vCenter Servers

  • NSX Managers

  • NSX Controllers

  • NSX Edge Services Gateways

  • Site Recovery Manager

  • vSphere Replication
