    Unable to add new host in nsx cluster

    john23 Expert

      Hi ,

       

      I have deployed nsx , and in nsx mapped cluster I want to add new host.

       

      Newly added host in cluster, how can we configure the already existing nsx .

       

      ex:

      two host in a cluster has nsx deployed. Now i have added third host in cluster, How can i now add nsx vibs and other existing stuff with newly added host

          Hi John,

           

          This is a standard process covered by the NSX documentation linked below

          Add a Host to a Prepared Cluster

          Add a Host to a Prepared Cluster
          This section describes how to add a host to a cluster prepared for network virtualization.
          1
          Add the host to vCenter Server as a standalone host.
          See ESXi and vCenter Server 5.5 Documentation.
          2
          Add the host to the vSphere Distributed Switch mapped to the cluster where you want to add the host.
          All hosts in the cluster must be in the vSphere Distributed Switch being leveraged by NSX.
          3
          Place the host into maintenance mode.
          4
          Add the host to the cluster.
          Since this is a prepared cluster, the required software is automatically installed on the newly added host.
          5
          Remove the host from maintenance mode.
          DRS balances virtual machines onto the host

            Hi John,

             

            If you have already prepared the host and follow the steps that Chris mentioned, then once you add the host to the cluster, the VIB's will be automatically downloaded to the new hosts and it will have the same VIB's what other hosts in that cluster will have for example it will get prepared for VXLAN and Distributed Firewall.
