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

When you connect your vCenter Server to vCenter Cloud Gateway, it establishes a connection between your vCenter Server and vSphere Advantage.
Note: vSphere Advantage adds a few roles prefixed with CloudServicesGateway in your vCenter Server. These roles enable vSphere Advantage to manage your vCenter Server. Do not modify or delete these roles.


  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 add.

What to do next

When the registration is complete, you can monitor your vCenter Server from the VMC Console. Log in to and click Inventory. You can view all the vCenter Servers connected to the cloud.
