How to configure a Compute Provider Scope for Data Center Groups?

Jump to solution

Hello,

I use the VCD/NSX-T layer with the following versions:

  • VMware Cloud Director: 10.2.2.17855680
  • VMware ESXi: 7.0.2.17867351
  • VMware NSX-T: 3.1.1.0.0.17483185

I would like to use the "Data Center Groups" in order to extend my edges and networks between Organization VDCs. However, when creating them, I get the error: "Compute Provider Scope missing on Org VDC [MYOVDC]. It cannot be used for Cross-VDC Networking.".

When I try to assign a scope from VCD (Cloud Resources > Provider VDCs > [MYPRODIERVDC] > General > Edit). I have the following error: "Cannot update Provider VDC [MYPRODIERVDC] as compute provider scope is missing on vCenter [MYVCENTER]."

I have read the following documentation: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Cloud-Director/10.2/VMware-Cloud-Director-Service-Provider-Admin-P..., but I can't do it πŸ˜•

So, if you can help me or guide me on how to create the scope, I am interested πŸ˜‰

Regards,

Hello @nebb2k8,

Sorry for the late reply previously given (by @Sreec).

Indeed, you have to configure the vcenter scope from VCD before you can use the function.

It will show in vCenter Server Registration ( Compute Provider Scope) which is optional when we register VC.
