The GCP machine type can be configured using SE group properties, from which the SE virtual machines are created in GCP. If the instance flavor in a SE group is not defined, the Service Engine virtual machines are created with the memory and vCPUs defined in the SE group.

To configure GCP machine type:


  1. From the NSX Advanced Load Balancer UI, navigate to Infrastructure > Service Engine Group
  2. Select the GCP Cloud.
  3. By default, a service engine group with the name Default-Group is created for the cloud. Either edit this or create a new service engine group.
  4. Select the GCP machine type in the Instance Flavor field.

  5. Click Save.
