    NSX-T, does deleting all the controllers affect current logical-network?

    niceguy001 Enthusiast

      I meant, assume that I'm using NSX-t version 2.3 in a production environment which can not afford to lose network and all the logical network are functioning.

       

      If all the controller nodes are deleted and then re-deploy controller nodes back to the original amount in this environment,

      how much will the logical network be affected during this no-controllers down time?

       

      1. will the existing logical network experience total lost of connectivity?

      2. or the existing logical network will still be able to transmit traffic?

      3. does the existing logical network need to be deleted and recreate after re-deployment of controllers?

          1. will the existing logical network experience total lost of connectivity?

           

          R.- Data Plane will no be affected.

          2. or the existing logical network will still be able to transmit traffic?

           

          R.- same as the previous answer.

          3. does the existing logical network need to be deleted and recreate after re-deployment of controllers?

           

          R.- No since this will be instantiated at Transport Node, one way to validate this behavior is by doing in something practical as the HOLS.

           

          hope this helps
