NSX Cloud creates a network topology for your public cloud VPC or VNet by generating logical networking entities in NSX-T Data Center.
Use this list as a reference for what is auto-generated and how you should use NSX-T Data Center features as they apply to the public cloud.
NSX Manager Configurations
See Auto-created NSX Logical Entities in the NSX-T Data Center Installation Guide for details on the logical entities created after a PCG is successfully deployed.
Important: Do not edit or delete any of these auto-created entities.
Note: If you are not able to access some features on Windows workload VMs ensure that the Windows firewall settings are correctly configured.
