Before you deploy the SDDC following this validated design, you must define the host names and IP addresses for the each of the management components deployed. Some of these host names must also be configured in DNS with fully qualified domain names (FQDNs) that map them to the IP addresses.

In a multi-region deployment with domain and forest structure, you must assign own IP subnets and DNS configuration to each sub-domain, sfo01.rainpole.local and lax01.rainpole.local. The only DNS entries that reside in the rainpole.local domain are the records for the virtual machines within the network containers that support disaster recovery failover between regions such as vRealize Automation and vRealize Operations Manager.
