VMware 5.1 Datacenter Management and

We have our primary VMware vSphere 5 Entereprise environment that is managed by a physical vCenter Server.

We have some older hosts, SAN, and FC switch that I am repurposing for our test and development network. I will be running vSphere Essentials Kit and this environment will be on it own SAN, FC Switch, and hosts.

My question is can I create a new Datacenter in my production vSphere vCenter Server to manage my test/dev VMware environment? It will be using different licensing then my production environment and will obviously not be a part of the same resource pool.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, you cannot manage vSphere Essentials Kits with vCenter Standard, so you will have to create a new standlone vCenter Server. (Essentials), and manage this Test/Dev environment seperately, you cannot Link the vCenters either using Link Mode.

I have already setup the vCenter appliance in the essentials environment I was just hoping that I could manage both from a single vCenter interface. Thanks for the answer though!
