After you upgrade the vCenter Server and Platform Services Controller components, you add the new appliances to virtual machine DRS groups. This enables the previously created anti-affinity rules and specifies that critical virtual machines, such as the vCenter Server instances, run on different hosts.

Table 1. Virtual Machine DRS Groups for Region A and Region B
Region Cluster Role Virtual Machine VM/Host Group
Region A sfo01-m01-mgmt01 Platform Services Controller for the management cluster sfo01m01psc01 Platform Services Controllers
Platform Services Controller for the shared edge and compute cluster sfo01w01psc01
vCenter Server for the management cluster sfo01m01vc01 vCenter Servers
vCenter Server for the shared edge and compute cluster sfo01w01vc01
Region B lax01-m01-mgmt01 Platform Services Controller for the management cluster lax01m01psc01 Platform Services Controllers
Platform Services Controller for the shared edge and compute cluster lax01w01psc01
vCenter Server for the management cluster lax01m01vc01 vCenter Servers
vCenter Server for the shared edge and compute cluster lax01w01vc01

Procedure

  1. Log in to vCenter Server by using the vSphere Web Client.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local/vsphere-client/.
    2. Log in by using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name administrator@vsphere.local
      Password vsphere_admin_password
  2. In the Navigator pane, select Host and Clusters, and expand the sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local tree.
  3. Add the Platform Services Controller instances to the Platform Services Controllers VM/Host Group.
    1. Select the sfo01-m01-mgmt01 cluster and click the Configure tab.
    2. On the Configure page, click VM/Host Groups.
    3. On the VM/Host Groups page, select the Platform Services Controllers group, and click Edit.
    4. In the Edit VM/Host Group dialog box, click Add, select sfo01m01psc01 and sfo01m01psc01, and click OK.
  4. Add the vCenter Server instances to the vCenter Servers VM/Host Group.
    1. Select the sfo01-m01-mgmt01 cluster and click the Configure tab.
    2. On the Configure page, click VM/Host Groups.
    3. On the VM/Host Groups page, select the vCenter Servers group, and click Edit.
    4. In the Edit VM/Host Group dialog box, click Add, select sfo01m01vc01 and sfo01w01vc01, and click OK.
  5. Repeat the procedure for the Platform Services Controller and vCenter Server instances in Region B.
