vCloud Automation Center – vCAC 6.0 – Adding vCHS Endpoints

This article covers how to add a vCHS Endpoint to vCAC 6.0.1

Adding a vCHS Endpoint

1. We start by going to the Infrastructure tab, then choosing Endpoints from the side menu and then Endpoints again. Once there hover over the New Endpoint item on the right side of the page.

4. Your url will look something like this https://host1111.vchs.vmware.com:443/cloud/org/M741965660-4568/. For the address filed in vCAC you only need to enter the FQDN like https://host1111.vchs.vmware.com:443. You would then add the org M741965660-4568 to the “Organization” field.

6. Click “Ok” and save the new EndPoint.

*Important – Don’t forget to add your vCHS Organization to an existing or new Fabric Group. Once you add the Organization to a Fabric Group vCAC will perform a data collection against the Organization and a compute resource will be available in the “Compute Resource” section of vCAC. If you do not add your organization to a Fabric Group you will not be able to create any reservation against it. For information on creating a Fabric Group click here.
