Datacenter Nodes for VE

For Spectrum Protect for VE, does anyone know if you can have MULTIPLE datacenter nodes assigned to a SINGLE datacenter? It appears that GUI won't allow for it, but I think it can be done via the command line.

The use case is that I want to separate production and non-prod VMs (in a single VMware datacenter) using folders. Once that's done, I plan to use tagging to assign a prod domain to the prod folder and a non-prod domain to the non-prod folder. This allows me to separate production storage pool replication workload from non-prod, which I don't want to replicate. Of course, to do this, I need to create a new datacenter node that can be assigned to the new non-prod domain, thus the need to have multiple datacenter nodes associated with a single VMware datacenter.

Again, it appears I can do this using the command line, but not in the GUI. And since the GUI won't allow for it, it leaves me to wonder if this is a supported (or allowed) approach.

Thanks in advance!
