After John Admin configures VXLAN transport parameters, he is ready to create a logical switch.


  1. Click Logical Switches and then click the New Logical Network icon.
  2. In Name, type ACME logical network.
  3. In Description, type Logical Network for extending ACME Engineering network to Cluster2.
  4. In Transport Zone, select ACME Zone.
  5. Click OK.
    NSX creates a logical switch providing L2 connectivity between dvSwitch1 and dvSwitch2.

What to do next

John Admin can now connect ACME's production virtual machines to the logical switch, and connect the logical switch to an NSX Edge services gateway or Logical Router.
