What's New

What's New
NSX Container Plug-in 2.1.2 is a maintenance release specifically for the NSX Container Plug-in (NCP) feature of NSX-T 2.1. It has the following improvements:
  • Support for a persistent and distinct egress IP per Kubernetes service in NAT topologies
  • Support for multiple Ingress controllers for a single Kubernetes cluster
  • Added support for matchExpressions with Network Policies
  • Pivotal Application Service (PAS) NSX-T tile improvements
  • Support for Kubernetes 1.10
  • Support for OpenShift 3.9

Resolved Issues

  • Issue 2011712: NCP does not handle network policy modify events properly

    When NCP is running and a network policy modify event occurs, NCP might not process the event properly. For example, the isolation rule might not be correct, or the source IPset rule might be missing.

  • Issue 2051265: NCP supports only equality-based label selectors for network policies

    Network policies select pods/namespaces using label selectors. Currently, NCP only supports equality-based label selectors. Inequality-based and set-based label selectors are not supported.

  • Issue 2046665: NCP does not support the dollar ('$') character in NSX Manager's password

    If NSX Manager's password contains the dollar ('$') character, NCP fails to work with Pivotal Cloud Foundry or OpenShift.

Known Issues

  • Issue 2083074: NSX Manager shows incorrect auto-discovered address bindings for a container logical port.

    If ARP snooping is enabled (through the IP discobery switching profile) for a container logical port and the container host VM's logical port, the NSX Manager's GUI might show incorrect auto-discovered address bindings for the container logical port. This is a cosmetic error and can be ignored. The actual address bindings are displayed under Manual Bindings.

    Workaround: None needed.
