VCAP-CMA Deploy – Objective 6.2

Disclaimer: These are my notes from studying for the 3V0-31.18 exam. If something doesn’t make sense, please feel free to reach out.

The main goal for the whole of section 6 is to understand the tenant administration required.

Objective 6.2 – Add additional tenants and/or business groups to existing ones


This should be a fairly quick objective to cover off.

Add additional tenants

Creating additional tenants is done by logging in as a System Administrator to the default tenant. From the Tenants tab, hit the new button to be presented with a fairly self explanatory form:

Once you’ve completed this page and hit the next button, you’ll be asked to create any local users that you need. I typically create the bare minimum, to be used to configure Active Directory authentication. Once that is done, keep it as a Break Glass type password.

Then add the user(s) you’ve just created to the appropriate group(s) – IaaS Administrators or Tenant Administrators.

Add new business groups

Logged in as a tenant administrator, go to Administration, Users & Groups, Business Groups. Hit the new button (surprise!) and fill in the first page of the form. On the next page, you need to add users to each role. For a definition of what each group does, hover over the i button. You can also check out my post from the VCP for what permissions each group gets here. Once that is done, you can allocate a default machine prefix and an Active Directory container if required.
