Before an organization administrator can configure load balancing services on an NSX-T Data Center edge gateway, a system administrator must assign a service engine group to the edge gateway.

The load balancing compute infrastructure provided by NSX Advanced Load Balancer is organized into service engine groups. A system administrator can assign one or more service engine groups to an NSX-T Data Center edge gateway.

All service engine groups that are assigned to a single edge gateway use the same service network.



  1. In the top navigation bar, click Networking and click the Edge Gateways tab.
  2. Click the NSX-T Data Center edge gateway to which you want to assign a service engine group.
  3. Under Load Balancer, click Service Engine Groups.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Select an available service engine group from the list.
  6. Enter a number for the maximum number of virtual services that can be placed on the edge gateway.
  7. Enter a number for the guaranteed virtual services available to the edge gateway.
  8. To confirm your settings, click Save.
