NSX-T 2.5: Configure Route Distribution on T0 (Tier-0) Gateway

When you enable route redistribution, the tier-0 logical router starts sharing specified routes with its northbound router. PrerequisitesVerify that the tier-0 and tier-1 logical routers are connected so that you can advertise the tier-1 logical router networks to redistribute them on the tier-0 logical router.If you want to filter specific IP addresses from route redistribution, … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Configure Route Distribution on T0 (Tier-0) Gateway

NSX-T 2.5: Connect T1 (Tier-1) Gateway to T0 (Tier-0) Gateway

The next picture shows these interfaces types along with a new RouterLink interface in a two-tiered topology.Follow the steps below to connect Tier-1 Gateway with Tier-0 Gateway.1 – Login on Edge Gateway and type the following command to list the all routes on Tier-0 Gateway.Get logical-routervrf  1get route2 – Select Networking > Tier 1 Gateways … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Connect T1 (Tier-1) Gateway to T0 (Tier-0) Gateway

NSX-T 2.5: Add a Tier-0 Gateway and configure bgp

the Tier-0 gateway provides N-S connectivity and connects to the physical routers. The Tier-0 gateway could use static routing or BGP to connect to the physical routers. The Tier-1 gateway cannot connect to physical routers directly; it has to connect to a Tier-0 gateway to provide N-S connectivity to the subnets attached to it.A DR … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Add a Tier-0 Gateway and configure bgp

NSX-T 2.5: Overlay and VLAN Segments

NSX-T Segments create logically abstracted logical Switch which you can connect tenant workloads. A single Segment is mapped to a unique Gateway that is distributed across the ESXi hosts in a transport zone.A Segment has different named references: “Segment” in the Simplified UI (Policy UI) and logical switch in the Advance UI (Manager UI).Depending upon … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Overlay and VLAN Segments

NSX-T 2.5: Add a Tier-1 Gateway

NSX-T supports a multi-tiered routing between provider router and tenant routing function. The top-tier logical router is referred to as tier-0 while the bottom-tier logical router is tier-1. This structure gives both provider and tenant administrators complete control over their services and policies. There is no dynamic routing between tier-1 and tier-0 LRs. The NSX-T … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Add a Tier-1 Gateway

NSX-T 2.5: Create an NSX Edge Transport Node

An NSX Edge Node is a transport node that runs the local control plane. The Edge Nodes are service appliances dedicated to running centralized network services that cannot be distributed to the hypervisors. Important: An NSX Edge can belong to one overlay transport zone and multiple VLAN transport zones. An NSX Edge belongs to at … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Create an NSX Edge Transport Node

NSX-T 2.5: Configure a Managed Host Transport Node

If we have a vCenter Server, we can automate the installation and creation of transport nodes on all the NSX-T Data Center hosts instead of configuring manually. If the transport node is already configured, then automated transport node creation is not applicable for that node. Follow the steps below to configure it. 1 - Select … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Configure a Managed Host Transport Node

NSX-T 2.5: Configure Transport Node Profile

A transport node profile captures the configuration required to create a transport node. Transport node profiles define an IP Pool, Transport Zone(s) and Uplink profile (created in the previous blogs) in a single configuration profile that is applied to the Transport nodes hypervisors. The transport node profile can be applied to an existing vCenter Server … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Configure Transport Node Profile

NSX-T 2.5: Create an Uplink Profile

An uplink profile defines policies for the uplinks. The settings defined by uplink profiles can include teaming policies, active and standby links, transport VLAN ID, and MTU setting. Uplink profile for Edge VM and Host Transport nodes considerations: If the Failover teaming policy is configured for an uplink profile, then you can only configure a … Continue reading NSX-T 2.5: Create an Uplink Profile
