Sharing resources between two vRA deployments

Jump to solution

Can anyone verify that it is possible to share resources on the same endpoint between two vRA deployments?

Yes, it's possible to do that, but be aware of conflicting reservations and how that affects your subscription rate. Also be aware of reusing the same port groups and network profiles. If not using external IPAM for integration, remember to assign unique ranges between the two installations. Basic things like that to ensure you can point to these resources but they don't step on each others' toes.

What do you mean by "resources" in this context?

By resources I mean storage, network and compute resources.  This would likely mean dedicated clusters for separate vRA deployments.  Each vra instances would have agents pointing to the same vcenter.

Thank you.  Of course your comments are all well taken.  This is definitely an edge case and requires special care of resource utilization.
