    Brownfield NSX deployment - to create a new DVS switch or not

    wreedMH Enthusiast

      We are installing NSX into our Production environment. Consists of two linked vCenters and 200 or so hosts. The question I have to you guys is when you did this in a Brownfield type deployment, did most of you use your existing VDS switch, or create a new one? The hosts we are POCing NSX in Prod on are new, so there would be no problem making a new VDS switch. My concern is when we get to the point when we want to NSX-enable the other clusters, they will still be using the old non-NSX enabled VDS.


      I am having a hard time thinking thru this alone. What did you guys do? What are your recommendations? Any thing to consider or any gotchas?
