PaaS with vCloud – Part 6 : Creating a Cloud Provider for vCAC in vCloud Application Director

In this blog post we’ll see steps involved in Creating a Cloud Provider for vCAC in vCloud Application Director .

In our previous blog post we saw how to Register vCloud Application Director to vCloud Automation Center.

Once you have ran the

sync-business-groups

command like we discussed in the previous blog post, all the business group users will be synced to the vCloud Application Director.

This will also let you login into vCAD portal using the business group users’ credentials.

Login into vCAD as the Business Group Manager , and create a Cloud Provider of type vCAC 6.0.

Ensure that you are logged into vCAD in the right group.
