This section details the prerequisites that are necessary for organization virtual data centers where tenant users create clusters.

Tenant organization virtual data centers require a routed, NSX backed organization virtual data center network. This network must have Internet connectivity to allow cluster VMs to download packages during configuration. It can be a routed organization VDC network with a source network address translation (SNAT) rule that allows VMs connected to the network access to outside world.

The edge gateway that powers the network must have the following settings:
  • Free static IP addresses that are assigned to load balancers that front the Kubernetes cluster’s control plane nodes.
  • NSX Load Balancer activated, and Service Engine group assigned to it
