Add Container Hosts with No TLS Authentication
If a Docker host or a vSphere Integrated Containers virtual container host (VCH) does not implement any level of TLS authentication, you do not provide a certificate when you add the host to a project in the management portal. Connections to the host use HTTP.
IMPORTANT: You should only register a VCH with one project at a time. Similarly, you should not add the same VCH to projects in multiple instances of vSphere Integrated Containers.
Log in to vSphere Integrated Containers Management Portal with a vSphere administrator or Management Portal administrator account. For information about logging in to vSphere Integrated Containers Management Portal, see Logging In to the Management Portal.
- In the Home view, click the Project drop-down menu and select the project to which to add the host.
- Navigate to Infrastructure > Container Hosts and click +Host.
On the New Container Host page, configure the host settings.
- Enter name for the host.
- Select VCH or Docker as type.
Enter the endpoint for the VCH as URL and click Save.
For example, http://hostname:2375.
The host appears on the Container Hosts page for the selected project. You can also see the hosts that you added to a project by navigating to Administration > Projects > project > Infrastructure.
