vCenter with Ext. PSC with nested ESG Load Balancer

Has anyone seen any supporting documentation for creating high availability for Both the External PSC's and both vCenter's using an NSX ESG as the load balancer?

We have 2 External PSC's that are joined together.  We have 2 VCSA's that are configured so that we have enhanced linked mode.  We want to enable vCenter HA.  We also want to enable HA on the PSC's.  The only way to automatically fail over the PSC's is to have a load balancer in place with the PSC's and VCSA's pointing to it.

Is there supporting documentation that allows you to install NSX...which we are going to do anyway, create an ESG load balancer, and repoint the PSC's and VCSA's to this newly installed ESG load balancer?

I know there is supporting docs for third party load balancers and I know there are supporting docs for this with a load balancer and using the manual fail-over method.  But I have not seen anything on nesting an ESG load balancer for the appliances to have HA.

Thanks in advance!

You may please follow VMware Knowledge Base   also go through Configuring NSX-v Load Balancer for use with vSphere Platform Services Controller (PSC) 6.0 - VMware...

Considering your use case VCSA HA and PSC HA , I would recommend configuring LB for PSC as per the KB and check the functionality and move forward with VCSA HA  and test LB functionality once again ( vCenter HA can be enabled, disabled, or destroyed at any time ).  You can choose basic/advanced workflow -> New Walkthroughs for vCenter High Availability - VMware vSphere Blog
