Yes, this is certainly possible. Technically this is a gateway movement activity for the workloads followed by DLR-Edge connectivity, keeping the SNAT/DNAT intact as long as there are no IP changes.
Sreec, thank you so much for your answer!
Currently,there is neither any logical switch nor any DLR. My proposed plan of action is to create four logical switches:
I want to disable the existing IPSec VPN Tunnel on the NSX edge.The edge and DLR will share the transit logical switch while the uplink interface of the NSX Edge will be connected to the primary and secondary IP address of the physical router at the client's end as it is now. SNAT/DNAT and the existing edge firewall rules will remain intact.
My only concern is the likely conflict in the IP addresses of all the VMs as they are in the 10.183.43.0/24 network and I want to attach them to respective logical switches in the 172.16.x.x network.
Currently,the number of VMs in different VM portgroups in the existing NSX environment are as below:
What should I do so that there is minimal impact on the existing setup?
Eagerly looking forward to hearing from you!
