You can manually add a security tag and apply it to a virtual machine. This is especially useful when you are using a non-NETX solution in your environment and hence, cannot register the solution tags with NSX Manager.



  1. Log in to the vSphere Web Client.
  2. Click Networking & Security and then click NSX Managers.
  3. Click an NSX Manager in the Name column and then click the Manage tab.
  4. Click the Security Tags tab.
  5. Click the New Security Tag (add) icon.
  6. Type a name and description for the tag and click OK.
