NSX-T with micro segmentation

Jump to solution

Hi all,

i am wondering if i have to build the whole NSX-T overlay network like TEP pools, Transport Zones, Edge VMs, N-VDS and so on to be able to use the Micro-segmentation option?

Thanks,

Overlay is not required, but the workload will need to be connected to a N-VDS.  So, after NSX-T is installed (i.e. Mgmt. and Control Plane up, hosts added as Fabric Nodes, etc) you will...

-Create VLAN transport zone

-Add VLAN Transport Zone to the transport nodes

-Create VLAN based Logical Switch

-Move/create VM’s vnic to VLAN based Logical Switch created on N-VDS

-Create grouping and DFW policy on NSX-T
