Only applies to stateless hosts. In this scenario, the transport node profile is not applied to the stateless cluster, which means that NSX-T is not installed and configured on the target host.
- Reboot hosts.
The target host starts with the ESXi image. After starting, the target host remains in maintenance mode until the TNP profile is applied to the target host and NSX-T installation is complete. Profiles are applied on hosts in the following order:Profiles are applied on hosts in the following order.
- Image profile is applied to the host.
- Host profile configuration is applied to the host.
- NSX-T configuration is applied to the host.
- On the ESXi host, the VMkernel adapter is attached to a temporary segment named <N-LogicalSegment> because the host is not yet a transport node. After NSX-T is installed the temporary switch is replaced with the actual N-VDS switch and logical segment.
ESXi VIBs are applied to all the rebooted hosts. A temporary NSX switch in an ESXi host. When TNP is applied to the hosts, the temporary switch is replaced by the actual NSX-T switch.
What to do next
Apply TNP to the stateless cluster. See Apply TNP on Stateless Cluster.
