If your NSX-V environment uses Edge Services Gateways, you must create an IP pool in the NSX environment for the Edge Tunnel End Points (TEP) before you start the migration.


  • Identify existing IP pools or DHCP ranges for NSX-V VTEPs.
  • Determine which IP addresses to use to create an IP pool for Edge TEPs.

    The IP range and VLAN must not already be in use in the NSX-V environment.

  • Verify that the NSX TEP IP addresses have network connectivity to the NSX-V VTEP IP addresses.
