Only applies to stateless hosts. When a new node is added to the cluster, manually reboot the node for the ESXi and NSX-T packages to be configured on it.


  1. Apply TNP to the stateless cluster that is already prepared with host profile. See Create and Apply TNP on Stateless Cluster.
  2. Reboot hosts.
    After applying TNP profile to the stateless cluster, when you reboot any new node joining the cluster that node is automatically configured with NSX-T on the host.

What to do next

Ensure that you reboot any new node joining the cluster to automatically deploy and configure ESXi and NSX-T on the rebooted node.
