Connect your vCenter Server to vCenter Cloud Gateway to monitor your vSphere infrastructure from vSphere+.

When you connect your vCenter Server to vCenter Cloud Gateway, it establishes a connection between your vCenter Server and vSphere+.

Procedure

  1. In a web browser, go to https://gw-address:5480/gw-platform/ where gw-address is the IP address or FQDN of vCenter Cloud Gateway.
  2. On the VMware Cloud card, click Launch.
  3. On the Connect vCenter Servers card, click Connect.
    vCenter Cloud Gateway uses the credentials only for authentication purposes and does not store the information.
  4. Click Add vCenter Servers and enter your vCenter Server details.
  5. (Optional) If you want to add multiple vCenter Servers, click Add vCenter Servers again and enter your vCenter Server details.
    Note: You can connect up to 4 vCenter Server instances on each vCenter Cloud Gateway instance.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the check box to accept your vCenter Server sending data to VMware Cloud.
  8. Click Connect N vCenter Server where N is the number of vCenter Servers that you want to connect.

What to do next

When the registration is complete, you can monitor your vCenter Server instances from the VMC Console. To view all the vCenter Server instances, log in to https://vmc.vmware.com and click Inventory.

vSphere+ adds a few roles prefixed with CloudServicesGateway in your vCenter Server. These roles enable vSphere+ to manage your vCenter Server. Do not modify or delete these roles.
