Can An embedded vCenter with VxRail become the external vCenter?

Jump to solution

Hi,

Though I can see a question and answer from the link below, Can an embedded vCenter with VxRail become the external vCenter for the one portal and multiple VxRail clusters?

https://www.emc.com/auth/rcoll/faq/vxrail-faq.pdf

Q: Will there be a management interface that ties in all VMware and storage management into one portal across all VxRail Appliance clusters a customer might have?

A: An external vCenter allows customers to manage multiple VxRail clusters from within the familiar vCenter interface.

Thanks

Best regards,

this has been a common ask from partners and customers and while today not supported, product management are looking into this model of a dedicated VxRail with embedded vCenter as a management cluster that also manages multiple VxRail clusters

This answer was almost a yoear ago. Are there any news on this? Just checked the documentation for 4.5 and it says:

The following restrictions apply when using your VxRail Appliance with an external

vCenter server:

The external vCenter server must be VMware VCSA 6.5 Update 1 or later.

Your VxRail Appliance cannot join an external vCenter server on another VxRail

Appliance cluster. The vCenter server on one VxRail Appliance cluster cannot be

used to manage other VxRail Appliance Clusters.


thx, Karsten

karstenbollert Which documentation contains that language? There is a phrase that we need to provide more clarity around. Thank you.
