I need to integrate a physical switch with NSX controller. This is for a POC for HW vtep integration with NSX controller
Anybody pls let me know what are the requirements.
My switch is running with linux 4.19.
It has SHA1 , opensslv3,
and has OVSDB Version 2.5
The NSX server is running on other side with version 6.3.4
both switch and server are in same network:
ovs-pki req+sign is used for generating certificate.
i an using vtep-ctl set-manager ssl:IP:6640 to initiate a connection to ovsdb-client running at [NSX controller].
i expect that ssl connection will be initiated by server in this case and ovsdb-client will be listening passively to connections.
Query: Will switch(not certified by vmware) get detected at nsx controller ??
As I'm sure you are aware, please follow the VMware Compatibility Guide - Hardware VXLAN Gateway for supported installations. Not an answer to your question, but why not use the Software based L2 Bridges that is built-in to NSX, if your physical switch is not supported?
