vCloud Automation Center – vCAC 6.0 – Creating a Fabric Group

Caution: Articles written for technical not grammatical accuracy, If poor grammar offends you proceed with caution ;-)

Fabric groups are important in vCAC.  The Fabric groups are what enable you to provide access to resources from your physical infrastructure.  Within a fabric group you add users or groups that are responsible for managing infrastructure resources and add the resources they are responsible for.  For example you may select clusters that are managed from vCenter and assign the user/groups that are responsible for managing those resources.

Creating a Fabric Group

  1. From the Infrastructure menu select Group form the left menu.
  2. VCAC6FG-1

  3. On the Group menu select Fabric Groups from the left.
  4. VCAC6FG-2

  5. Select New Fabric Group form the right of the page.
  6. VCAC6FG-3

  7. Give your Fabric Group and Name, assign the users and/or groups who will be the Fabric Administrators, select the resources they will be responsible for, and then click OK.
  8. VCAC6FG-4

  9. You will now see your new Fabric Group in the list.  This concludes creating a Fabric Group.

  1. Hi,

    Have you been able to add an AD group (if the AD is configured as an identity store within the tenant) here as a fabric administrators group?

    Everytime you type the first few letters of a group name, it does not find that group and only shows the matching user accounts here which is weird….


  2. Have you been able to add groups as fabric administrators? I know it says in the VCAC6 product documentation (as well as on your post above) that both users and groups can be added as fabric administrators but im not sure if the groups can be added (from the identity store). For example, where you add users when you click on that drop down menu, it only lists the individual user accounts available in the identity storage and not the groups….. Can you still manually type the group name () and would that work??
