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.

For OpenShift 4, you must use Policy mode or Policy API to configure NSX-T resources.

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.
