About the vCenter Servers Page

To access this page, select Security Director > Devices > vCenter Servers.

VMWare NSX Manager is always associated to a vCenter Server. Based on the NSX Manager discovered by Security Director, the NSX service automatically fetches the associated vCenter server hostname. The NSX service uses the specific vCenter credentials provided by the user at the time of adding the NSX Manager, to connect to vCenter and obtain any required inventory from it.

Use the vCenter Servers page to view details of an associated vCenter Server.
