Recover NSX?

We have had a major failure in our environment. The NSX controllers (and backups) have been destroyed. However, the customer cluster remained online and all deployed NSX components are functioning.

Is there a way to rebuild the NSX managers and have them discover the deployed solution?

If there are no backups we can't recover or do any manual mapping. I'm afraid, this will require a complete rebuild.

Is there a discovery script of some sort that will discovery the current deployment details on the ESXi hosts?

your best bet is to try to check thru vCenter what are the constructs for VMs and command line from ESXi to check DFW but will be a job to get everything in one shot.

Found the issue to be a remapped VSAN path. Updated path and recovered the instances.

Now, working on backups and cannot find a single SFTP product that supports what NSX-T 3 requires.

The easiest option would be to leverage a ubuntu instance with opensshd or centos
