    NSX DLR

      I have the below scenario in my design.

       

      • 2 Data Center - DC1 & DC2
      • DC1 - Primary & DC2 - DR
      • NSX Manger & vCenter in each DC with 1:1 ratio mapping

       

      In DC 1 have a network configured under DLR 100.100.100.0/24

      This network is advertised from DC 1 in normal scenario using OSPF (OSPF between NSX <-> Phyical routers)

       

      I want to use the same network in my DC 2 as DR. i.e the network should be configured in DC 2 but route should not be advertised from DC2.

      When DC 1 goes down, the same network should be advertised from DC2.

      To achieve this , from my understanding I need to do the following.

      1. Configure DC2 DLR with the same network (100.100.100.0/24) with the LIF as 100.100.100.1 & advertise via OSPF.
      2. The interface  should be in down state so that it does not advertise the routes.
      3. When I need to bring up the DC 2 (assuming DC1 is down) I need to enable the DLR LIF to up state so that the network (100.100.100.0/24) is advertised from DC 2.

       

      Let me know if the above is possible. If it is possible i would like to know how to achieve this. Mainly how to keep the LIF in down state & how to enable it when required.
