After you have successfully installed the Platform Services Controller instances, you must add the appliances to your Active Directory domain. The identity sources configured for the vSphere Domain automatically propagate to Region B. Users can then be assigned permissions to view or manage SDDC components for this region.

Repeat this procedure twice, once for the management cluster and again for the shared edge and compute cluster.
