Enhanced Linked Mode links multiple vCenter Server systems. With Enhanced Linked Mode, you can view and search across all linked vCenter Server systems. This mode replicates roles, permissions, licenses, and other key data across systems.

Enhanced Linked Mode provides the following features for vCenter Server:
  • You can log in to all linked vCenter Server systems simultaneously with a single user name and password.
  • You can view and search the inventories of all linked vCenter Server systems within the vSphere Client.
  • Roles, permission, licenses, tags, and policies are replicated across linked vCenter Server systems.

To join vCenter Server systems in Enhanced Linked Mode, connect them to the same vCenter Single Sign-On domain.

Enhanced Linked Mode requires the vCenter Server Standard licensing level, and is not supported with vCenter Server Foundation or vCenter Server Essentials.
