On the Platform Services Controller load balancer, create two server pools that contain the Platform Services Controller instances for the management and for the shared edge and compute clusters. The first server pool handles SSL requests from the vSphere Web Client on port 443 and the second handles requests to the VMware Directory service on port 389.

Repeat this procedure to create two server pools. Use the values indicated in the procedure to create the first and second server pools.
