Connect your On-Premises Environment

Now that you are logged into Cloudockit (please click here if you are not logged-in yet), we can connect to your On-Premises environments.

Cloudockit is a solution that is 100% agent-free, which means you do not have to install any agents or extensions in your environment.

You need to download the script and execute it on your VMware or Hyper-V Host. It will generate a xx-cdk-export.json file that you then upload using the browse button.
