VMware-Specific Configurations

Dynamic Cloud Resource Enumeration for VMware

CloudCenter dynamically pulls cloud resources during the VMware CCO configuration in the CCM. As a result, fields like Datacenter name, Resource Pool, and Cluster information are automatically populated during the cloud configuration phase. See VMware Network Settings for additional context.

VMware Folders

The CloudCenter platform enables a user to specify the Target Deployment Folder when provisioning a VM.

This field allows you to define the default folder from which to deploy the VM. The following macros are supported when configuring the folder name:

  • %USER_ID%

A sample configuration example can be /CliQr/dev/%VENDOR_ID%/%USER_ID%
If the folder does not exist, it will be created.

Resource Placement

The CloudCenter platform supports Distributed Virtual Switch (DVS) networks, ACI networks, and Standard network.

When defining cloud settings using Resource Placement, the CloudCenter platform requires you to specify the parsing value for the network by providing the switch and port information in the following format for the DVS and ACI networks in the resource placement script.

<distributed port group name> (<distributed switch name>)

# Example for DVS and ACI networks
DistributedPortGroupName1 (DistributedSwitch1)

# Example for standard networks
