The first step of the migration process is to import the NSX-V configuration.

Note: During this step, all NSX-T Edge node interfaces in the NSX-T environment are shut down. If the NSX-T environment is in use, this will interrupt traffic.


  1. From a browser, log in to NSX Manager as admin.
  2. Navigate to System > Migrate.
  3. In the NSX for vSphere pane, click Get Started and select Fixed Topology.
  4. From the Import Configuration page, click Select NSX and provide the credentials for vCenter Server and NSX-V.
    Note: The drop-down menu for vCenter Server displays all vCenter Server systems that are registered as compute managers. Click Add New if you need to add a compute manager.
  5. Click Start to import the configuration.
  6. When the import has finished, click Continue to proceed to the Resolve Configuration page.

    If the import fails due to incorrect edge node configuration translation, click the Failed flag to view information about the number and size of the required NSX Edge resources. After you deploy the correct number and size of edge nodes, click Rollback to roll back this migration attempt and restart the configuration import.


When the NSX-V topology is imported successfully, the View Imported Topology link is enabled. Click this link to view a graph of the imported topology. However, the topology viewer does not work for a scaled NSX-V environment.
