Essential NSX-T entities are created and configured automatically after you prepare your VMs for NSX.

The following is the list of these configurations:

  • A logical port is created for this VM.

  • The VM is assigned an overlay IP address (if you chose to set the mode to overlay).

  • The VM is marked as NSX managed.

  • The VM is reported as part of the inventory in NSX Manager to achieve, for example, micro-segmentation on logical constructs.

  • East-West traffic is enabled for this VM.
