I am trying to create a nested vsphere environment for Lab purpose over my current vSphere Cluster with NSX.
I have create a VXLAN dedicated to host my nested esxi hosts.
I have already changed the Forced Transmit and Promiscous Mode of my Logical Switch and vDS.
After I deployed the Nested ESXi hosts and a dedicated VCSA for this nested environment, I tried to register the Nested ESXi hosts into vCSA but I can't.
I got an error of communication.
I have checked if firewall from my NSX Edge Gateway was enable, but it is not.
After doing a lot of test I noticed if I move all nested esxi hosts and the VCSA to the physical ESXi where my NSX Edge Gateway was registered I could register the nested ESXi into their VCSA.
Is it normal or I am doing something wrong?
Could anyone here help me to put this nested environment up and running?
Is there any topology that you can share to understand the setup ? From what i can understand you have deployed VCSA inside the nested ESXI and it connected to a logical switch- edge connection ,i may be wrong. If feasible also for simplicity purpose,you can deploy all management components(VC,AD,DNS,NSX ..etc) on main host on a vSphere Portgroup along with nested ESXI VM's , and leverage the nested ESXI for NSX infra. I follow this structure for a two site nested infra which i'm running in my lab - Easy to break and explore without impacting management software's .
