Use this procedure to configure a tier-0 gateway for EVPN Inline mode.


  1. With admin privileges, log in to NSX Manager.
  2. Select Networking > Tier-0 Gateways.
  3. Create a tier-0 gateway and configure uplink interfaces between the tier-0 gateway and data center gateways. See Add an NSX Tier-0 Gateway.
  4. (Optional) Configure loopback interfaces for each edge node to be used as the BGP source address and VXLAN VTEPs.
  5. (Optional) If connecting to BGP peers using loopbacks, make sure that the data center gateway external loopbacks are reachable from the parent tier-0 gateway.
    This connectivity can be achieved either by using OSPF or static routes.
  6. Enable EVPN.
    1. Expand the EVPN Settings section.
    2. For EVPN Mode, select Inline.
    3. For EVPN/VXLAN VNI Pool, select a VNI pool.
    4. For EVPN Tunnel Endpoint, click Set > Add EVPN Local Tunnel Endpoint.
      1. Enter a name for the endpoint.
      2. Select the edge node.
      3. Enter the IP address for the VXLAN TEP.
      4. Click Save and then Close.
  7. (Optional) If the VXLAN TEP IP address is different than the loopback interface IP address used for the BGP neighbor configuration, make sure that the local tunnel endpoints is redistributed into the tier-0 BGP routing table.
    1. Expand the Route Re-distribution section.
    2. Click Set > Add Route Re-distribution.
      1. Enter a name for the re-distribution policy.
      2. For Destination Protocol, select BGP.
      3. Click Set and then select EVPN TEP IP.
      4. Click Apply.
      5. Click Add and then Apply.
