Install NSX Manager and Available AppliancesYou can use the vSphere Client to deploy NSX Manager or the Cloud Service Manager as a virtual appliance. Configure a Virtual IP (VIP) Address for a ClusterTo provide fault tolerance and high availability to NSX Manager nodes, assign a virtual IP address (VIP) to a member of the NSX-T cluster. Disable Snapshots on NSX-T AppliancesAs VMs, the NSX Manager and NSX Edges may be configured for having their snapshots taken and stored. However, clones and snapshots of NSX-T appliances are not supported and may cause functionality and unknown other issues. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you disable snapshots of NSX-T appliance VMs.
