Lab 5 – Configure Hybrid Linked Mode
Lab 4 and 5 Lecture Material
Review Cloud Gateway Appliance Settings
Hybrid Linked Mode allows you to link your VMware Cloud on AWS vCenter Server instance with an on-premises vCenter Single Sign-On domain. If you link your cloud vCenter Server to a domain that contains multiple vCenter Server instances linked using Enhanced Linked Mode, all of those instances are linked to your cloud SDDC.
Create an HLM Admin Group
In this lab task, we will create a new Active Directory Group to map to HLM and the cloud admins VMC vCenter group.
Allow Access Between On-Premises and SDDC
We will now configure Hybrid Linked mode by registering the On-Premises vCenter and SDDC vCenter to the Cloud gateway, we’ll also provide an Active Directory Group that will be assigned Cloud Admin Privileges.
