Add Container Hosts with Server-Side TLS Authentication
If a Docker host or a vSphere Integrated Containers virtual container host (VCH) implements server-side authentication without verification of client certificates, you do not provide a certificate when you add the host to a project in the management portal. Connections to the host use HTTPS.
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.
For example, https://hostname:2376.
Do not enter credentials and click Save.
- If you are prompted to trust the certificate, click OK.
The host appears on the Container Hosts page for the selected project. You can also see the host that you added to a project by navigating to Administration > Projects > project > Infrastructure.
