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.


  1. Using SSH, log in to the first Edge node (sfo01wesg01 with the following credentials:.
    User name: admin
    Password: nsx_edge_admin_password
  2. Get information about the Tier-0 and Tier-1 service routers and distributed router.
    get logical-router
    For 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
  3. Using the VRF value for SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER0, connect to the service router for Tier-0.
    vrf 1
  4. The prompt changes to hostname(tier0_sr)>. All commands are associated with this object.
  5. Verify the BGP connections to the neighbors of the service router for Tier-0.
    get bgp neighbor
    The BGP State for each neighbor appears as Established, up for hh:mm:ss.
  6. Verify that you are receiving routes by using BGP and that multiple routes to BGP-learned networks exist.
    get route
  7. Repeat this procedure on the second Edge node.
