The Tier-0 gateway must establish a connection to each of the upstream Layer 3 devices before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that the NSX-T Edge nodes are successfully peering and that BGP routing is established.
- Using SSH, log in to the first Edge node (sfo01wesg01 with the following credentials:.
User name: adminPassword: nsx_edge_admin_password
- Get information about the Tier-0 and Tier-1 service routers and distributed router.
get logical-routerFor example, the output of the command might contain the following configuration:
UUID VRF LR-ID Name Type Ports sample_uuid 0 0 TUNNEL 3 sample_uuid 1 5 SR-tier0-01 SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER0 6 sample_uuid 2 2 DR-tier1-01 DISTRIBUTED_ROUTER_TIER1 5 sample_uuid 3 3 DR-tier0-01 DISTRIBUTED_ROUTER_TIER0 4 sample_uuid 4 11 SR-tier1-01 SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER1 5
- Using the VRF value for SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER0, connect to the service router for Tier-0.
- The prompt changes to hostname(tier0_sr)>. All commands are associated with this object.
- Verify the BGP connections to the neighbors of the service router for Tier-0.
get bgp neighborThe BGP State for each neighbor appears as Established, up for hh:mm:ss.
- Verify that you are receiving routes by using BGP and that multiple routes to BGP-learned networks exist.
- Repeat this procedure on the second Edge node.
