    NSX-T Application Continuity Cross-vCenter

    canero Hot Shot



      NSX-V Cross-vcenter provides central microsegmentation dfw rule management for VMs on multiple sites. If NSX-T is used, is it possible to centralize dFW rules, or create Universal Objects for Multiple sites similar to uDLR or uLS?


      NSX-T there is no vCenter Plugin, so it seems not to be related vCenter one-to-one mapping, but no reference guide Multiste Application Continuity solution is not detailed

          my understanding of it yes you can do multiple site and yes it should support universal. Actually if we follow product use case there is no universal - universal was used for cross-vc deployment.

          Since NSX-T not tied to VC any more there is no need of universal any way. so NSX Manager will distribute firewall rules based on connection to controllers  (remember in NSX-T Controllers are necessary but optional as in NSX-V). If you registered to NSX manager and Controller node  you will get rules and there is no need to be marked as universal since there is no connection to VC.
