You can replace an NSX Edge transport node in an NSX Edge cluster using the NSX Manager UI or the API.

Important: NSX Edge cluster does not support heterogenous NSX Edge nodes, such as a cluster formed by NSX Edge VMs and Bare Metal NSX Edge nodes. However, you can use heterogenous NSX Edge nodes only when you want to migrate these nodes.

The ACL (Access Control List) rules configured on the NSX Edge node to be replaced will be lost. The rules will not be present on the new node.
