Managing Multiple vSphere vCenters
This topic describes how you can add, delete, and modify multiple vSphere vCenters in the vCenter Configs pane of the vSphere BOSH Director tile. This allows you to spread instances across regions without having to deploy and manage multiple PCF foundations.
The ability to add and manage multiple vCenters was introduced in Ops Manager v2.2.
When you have only one vCenter, you do not see a list of vCenter configs when you select the vCenter Configs pane. Instead, you see the form to the one vCenter config and an option to Add vCenter Config.
To add a new vCenter, perform the following steps:
Click Add vCenter Config toward the top of the vCenter Configs pane.
Enter a unique Name for your vCenter to diffentiate it from your other vCenters.
Complete the rest of the form for your new vCenter. For more information about the fields, see Step 2: vCenter Configs Page in Configuring BOSH Director on vSphere.
Select the Create Availability Zones pane. Create one or more AZs and associate them to your new vCenter with the IaaS Configuration field. For more information, see Create Availability Zone Page in Configuring BOSH Director on vSphere.
To modify one of multiple vCenters, perform the following steps:
Go to the “List of vCenter Configs” by selecting the vCenter Configs pane or by clicking View All Configs from a vCenter config form.
Click the pencil icon to go to the form of that vCenter.
Edit the fields you want to change.
To delete your vCenter, perform the following steps:
From the BOSH Director tile, select the Create Availability Zones pane.
Click the trashcan icon to disassociate each AZ with your vCenter. To know which AZs are associated with your vCenter, expand each AZ and see IaaS Configuration.
Note: Ops Manager does not allow you to delete your first AZ or your first vCenter. Your first AZ is always associated with your first vCenter config.
Select the vCenter Configs pane.
Click the trashcan icon to delete your vCenter.
