Since VMware Cloud Foundation is not aware of NSX Federation in your environment, you must download the NSX-T Data Center upgrade bundle manually and then upgrade the Local Managers.


  1. Locate the NSX-T Data Center build on the VMware download portal.
  2. Navigate to the upgrade bundle file and click Read More.
  3. Verify that the upgrade bundle filename extension ends with .mub. The upgrade bundle filename has a format similar to VMware-NSX-upgrade-bundle-ReleaseNumberNSXBuildNumber.mub.
  4. Download the upgrade bundle to the system where you access the NSX Global Manager UI.
  5. Upgrade all Local Managers in your NSX Federation environment. See Upgrade NSX-T Data Center.
