Within certain limitations, you can migrate vSphere Distributed Switches that are not part of an NSX Data Center for vSphere environment.
Required Software and Versions
- See the VMware Product Interoperability Matrices for required versions of vCenter Server and ESXi: http://partnerweb.vmware.com/comp_guide2/sim/interop_matrix.php#interop&175=&1=&2=
- vSphere Distributed Switch version 6.5.0 and 6.6.0 are supported.
Limitations and Recommendations
If your current vSphere implementation uses vSphere Distributed Switch version 7.0, migration to NSX-T Data Center version 3.x is not supported.
It is recommended you install NSX-T Data Center separately and configure it to use with your current vSphere implementation.
