NSX Advanced Load Balancer can be configured to provide automatic IP address allocation for virtual services and to provide authoritative DNS resolution for their virtual IP addresses.

Starting with NSX Advanced Load Balancer version 20.1.3, GCP IPAM on GCP is not supported.

General Configuration Workflow

Initial configuration is common to both IPAM and DNS. This section lists the steps for configuring IPAM and DNS support. The configuration fields differ among the infrastructure types and the provider (NSX Advanced Load Balancer, Infoblox, AWS, GCP, and OpenStack).

  1. Navigate to Templates > Profiles.

  2. Click IPAM/DNS Profile.

  3. Click Create and select the provider.

  4. Specify the necessary details. Click Save. The profile appears in the list.

  5. Navigate to Infrastructure > Clouds, and edit the cloud setting.

  6. Select the IPAM and DNS providers from the drop-down menu. Either one or both need to be selected, based on the provider selected.

  7. (Optional) For east-west virtual services in this cloud, select east-west IPAM and DNS providers from the drop-down menu. Either one or both can be selected.

  8. Click Save.
