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

Allocate host names and IP addresses to the following components in Region B and configure DNS with an FQDN that maps to the IP address where defined:

Components Requires DNS Configuration
Platform Services Controllers X
vCenter Servers X
NSX Managers X
NSX Edge Services Gateways -
