Add Hosts with Server-Side TLS Authentication to the Management Portal

Connect hosts that require server-side TLS authentication only over HTTP with no credentials.

IMPORTANT: If you have deployed multiple instances of the vSphere Integrated Containers appliance, you can only register a virtual container host (VCH) with one instance of the management portal at a time.


  1. In the management portal, navigate to Infrastructure > Container Hosts and click +New.
  2. On the New Container Host page, configure the host settings.

    1. Enter name for the host.
    2. Select VCH as type.
    3. Enter the endpoint for the VCH as URL.

      For example, https://hostname:2376.

    4. Do not enter credentials and click Save.

    5. If you are prompted to trust the certificate, click OK.


The VCH appears on the Container Hosts page and can be managed.
