As a vSphere Administrator, you enable a vSphere cluster as a Supervisor. You can select between creating the Supervisor with the vSphere networking stack or with VMware NSX® (NSX) as the networking solution. A cluster configured with NSX supports running a vSphere Pod and a Tanzu Kubernetes cluster created through the VMware Tanzu™ Kubernetes Grid™. A Supervisor that is configured with the vSphere networking stack only supports Tanzu Kubernetes clusters.

After you enable the Supervisor, you can use the vSphere Client to manage and monitor the cluster.
