A transport node prepared with VDS as a host switch ensures that segments created in NSX-T is realized as an NSX Distributed Virtual port group on a VDS switch and Segment in NSX-T.
In earlier versions of NSX-T Data Center , a segment created in NSX-T are represented as an opaque network in vCenter Server. When running NSX-T on a VDS switch, a segment is represented as an NSX Distributed Virtual Port Groups.
Any changes to the segments on the NSX-T network are synchronized in vCenter Server.
In vCenter Server, an NSX Distributed Virtual Port Group is represented as .
Any NSX-T segment created in NSX-T is realized in vCenter Server as an NSX-T object. A vCenter Server displays the following details related to NSX-T segments:
Virtual network identifier of the segment
Attached virtual machines
The port binding for the segment is by default set to Ephemeral. Switching parameters for the switch that are set in NSX-T cannot be edited in vCenter Server and conversely.
- Add VMkernel Adapters.
- Migrate VMs to Another Network.
- Replication Mode for the segment
- VLAN trunk ID used by the segment
- Switching Profiles (for example, Port Mirroring)
- Ports created on the segment
