Migration NSX-v 6.4.9 to NSX-T 3.1.2

Hello.

I tried to migrate NSX-v to NSX-t. I have standart license of NSX.

When I make laboratory stand with NSX-v I didnot applied any "Professional", "Advanced" or "Enterprise" features.

However, on "Migrate configuration" stage I get the error:

"Errors: Config migration failed [Reason: HTTP Error: 403: This feature is not supported with the current applied license. Please upgrade your license in order to use this feature. for url: http://localhost:6440/policy/api/v1/infra"

How can I know what feature I shoud tourned off??

Hi

 

I am not sure about license [At the moment], I may check on that and come back to you 

Can you export the migration coordinator logs [more important the cm directory] from the leading NSX Node? 

 

Please feel free to DM if I didn't follow well in thread here ..

Hi Khalid,

thanks you. could you please tell me to find the cm directory inside the support-bundle?

some adition to our setup: we do not use any networking features like overlay-networking, routing etc.. routing switching firewalling is all done in the upstream network.

we only use vedges to secure connections between some vlan-based portgroups. therefore we can not understand the licensing error

Edit:- Can you find these rules from V, delete it just for the sake of migration, migrate and reconfigure as you wish in T?

Is this is acceptable/ doable with you?

Can you please tell me if there's any V DFW rules been there, or if there's any that can be removed during the V2T and then reconfigure ? 

 

The below line could mean many thing .....  I am sure your VC is connected to NSXv and the connection is healthy, please just confirm this and if there's any unused dvpg/ without active uplinks - just delete it or attach it 

 

CM.engine.xlate_engine

 

 

 

If that didn't help you, please DM me

@Smith052 

 

For V2Ts you may see similar errors, warning ... etc - but the root would be different.

 

Please attach the migration logs, and I will help as much as I can

Hi Khalid,

meanwhile we opened a SR and TechSupport is investigating the support-bundle.

Seem T can't implement the same or some DFW rules " Default ones" for some reason 

 

1. I am sure you can create any DFW rules you wish on T side, yes ? 

I need to look at the full bundle [i.e: policy and manager logs] to track this one:- 

 

failed to PATCH http://localhost:7440/nsxapi/api/v1/infra/domains/default/security-policies/012c50e1-e955-4104-bffc-b76c85884abf with status: 403 and reason: {

 

 

 

2. Please DM me the SR number, I may co-operate with them ?

Hi Khalid,

1.we have not setup any DFW rules and the we are not able to delte the default rule in NSX-V

On the NSX-T side we only installed the NSXT-Manager, installed the license key and fired the migration-coordinator.

2. SR is send to you via DM

 

thanks

Hi Markus

 

I see the T can't post sime DFW elements, but the license it blocking that, I kisy assume a license upgrade would be required

Hi Khalid,

 

thx for digging in. We do not have any feature in place that would require a license upgrade.

because even without any feature konfigured the migration failes.

we will see what TS investigates. maybe they have more detailed results
