After the Edge bridge node is configured to become an NSX-T Edge transport node, you can add the node to an NSX Edge cluster. This Edge bridge cluster is independent of the Edge cluster that you use for routing and north-south connectivity with the physical routers.
For example, let us create an NSX Edge cluster named Cluster1 and add one NSX Edge transport node EN1 to this cluster.
- At least one NSX Edge node is deployed.
- NSX Edge is joined to the management plane.
- NSX Edge is configured to become an NSX-T Edge transport node.
- From a browser, log in with admin privileges to an NSX Manager at https://nsx-manager-ip-address.
- Select .
- Enter the NSX Edge cluster name.
For example, name the cluster as Cluster1.
- (Optional) Select an NSX Edge cluster profile.
The default NSX Edge High Availability (HA) profile is preselected. In this example, Edge HA is not required.
- In the Member Type drop-down menu, ensure that Edge Node is selected.
- From the Available list, select NSX Edges, and click the right-arrow to move them to the Selected list.
Select one Edge bridge VM when Edge HA is not required or two Edge VMs when Edge HA is required.In this example, move EN1 to the Selected list.
