Before installing NCP, you need to set up some NSX-T resources.
Note: When you install NSX-T, the default license does not allow creating or updating objects that you will need to support NCP. For more information, see https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-NSX-T-Data-Center/3.1/administration/GUID-8E665EAC-A44D-4FB3-B661-E00C467B2ED5.html.
The NSX Manager web UI provides 2 methods to configure networking resources: Policy mode and Manager mode. For more information, see https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-NSX-T-Data-Center/3.1/administration/GUID-BB26CDC8-2A90-4C7E-9331-643D13FEEC4A.html.
You must use one of the two methods to configure NSX-T networking for NCP, but not both. You must set the policy_nsxapi option in the NCP YAML file to True if you use the Policy mode, or False if you use the Manager mode.
The following sections assume that you are familiar with installing and administering NSX-T Data Center. For more information, see the NSX-T Data Center Installation Guide and the NSX-T Data Center Administration Guide.
