Use this procedure to configure a tier-0 VRF gateway for EVPN Inline mode.


  1. With admin privileges, log in to NSX Manager.
  2. Select Networking > Tier-0 Gateways.
  3. Add a VRF gateway.
    1. Click Add Gateway > VRF.
    2. Enter a name for the gateway.
    3. Select a tier-0 gateway with EVPN Inline mode enabled to connect to.
      Some advanced configurations are inherited from the parent tier-0 gateway, such as HA mode, edge cluster, internal transit subnet, T0-T1 transit subnets, and BGP Local ASN.
  4. Expand the VRF Settings section.
    1. Enter the route distinguisher.
      If the connected parent tier-0 gateway has RD Admin Address configured, then the Route Distinguisher field is automatically populated. Enter a new value if you want to override the assigned route distinguisher.
    2. For Route Targets, click Set > Add Route Target to add route targets.
      • For EVPN, only the Manual mode is supported.
      • Specify one or more Import Route Targets to install the desired received routes from BGP peers to the VRF routing table.
      • Specify one or more Export Route Targets to label advertised VRF routes.
    3. Click Add and then Apply.
    4. For EVPN Transit VNI, enter the L3 transit VNI value for the VRF.
      This VNI must be unique per VRF and belong to the configured EVPN/VXLAN VNI pool. Make sure that the same VNI value for the VRF is configured on the external router.
  5. Click Save and then Yes to continue configuring the VRF gateway.
  6. Expand the Route Re-distribution section.
    1. Click Set > Add Route Re-Distribution.
    2. Enter a name for the re-distribution policy.
    3. Click Set to select available sources, such as tier-0 connected interfaces and segments.
    4. Click Apply.
    5. Click Add and then Apply.
  7. Make sure that the created segments or tier-1 gateways are connected to the new tier-0 VRF gateway.
