Recommendations for multiple vCenter deployments
Consider the following recommendations if you have mulitiple VMware vCenters in the deployment (a multi-site deployment, for example):
- Make sure you have the same VM template names available on all of the vCenters. You can then create Virtual Guest Packages (VGPs) from one vCenter and still provision VMs to other vCenters.
- To minimize template overhead, it is highly recommended to keep templates as minimal as possible (such as, only OS with optionally an enterprise-based software stack, such as antivirus program).
