You can create IP sets, IP pools, MAC sets, NSGroups, and NSServices in Manager mode. You can also manage tags for VMs.

For Policy Groups containing IPs, MAC addresses, and Identity Groups the listing API will NOT display the ‘members’ attribute. This applies to Groups containing a combination of static members also. For example, a Policy Group containing IP and VMs, will not display the the members attribute.

For Policy Groups not containing IPs, MAC addresses, or Identity Groups, the member attribute will be displayed in the NSGroup response. However new members and criteria introduced in NSX-T Data Center (such as DVPort and DVPG) will not be included in the MP group definition. Users can view the definition in Policy.


If you use Manager mode to modify objects created in the Policy mode, some settings might not be configurable. These read-only settings have this icon next to them: . See NSX Manager for more information.
