    Can you use REST for cross-vCenter fail scenarios?

      Hi. We are in a cross-vCenter deployment. It is a pretty small deployment though.

       

      During failover test of course, you have to unassign Primary NSX from Secondary, demote to Transit, assign as Primary. And of course deploy a new controller cluster at the Secondary site. Failover has quite a few steps too.

       

      We have documentation, and can do it all through vCenter, but I was looking at REST and wondering if you could do all the above steps ( I obviously didnt get into detail) to do this? I have pretty much ZERO rest so I would need to test. But it intrigues me to be able to automate our failover and failback process.

       

      Do I bother investigating more? And how should I get started? Thanks,,,
