Create vCenter Compute Zone

To create a new vCenter compute zone:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > AdminSettings menu and click the Compute Zones icon.
  2. Press "+" or click the Create Compute Zone button.
  3. On the screen that follows give your compute zone a name (Label), choose Server Type (virtual) and select Location Group.

    Please do not proceed with other settings, since they will not be applicable after attaching a vCenter compute resource and converting into vCenter compute zone.

  4. Click the Save button.
  5. You will be redirected to the Compute Zone overview page. On this page, you will see Unassigned Compute Resources which can be added to this Compute Zone.
  6. Click the "+" icon to assign a required vCenter compute resource(s).

    • The vCenter compute resource cannot be assigned to a compute zone if this zone already has any compute resources and attached networks.
    • The compute resource that does not belong to vCenter cannot be assigned to a compute zone if this compute zone has vCenter compute resource and attached networks.

    • Please do not assign data stores to vCenter compute zones. Instead, you may assign data stores to vCenter compute resources by following this instruction.
