You can add NSX-T to the Skyline Collector.

To add NSX-T to the Skyline Collector, follow these steps:

Prerequisites

For NSX-T, the NSX Auditor role does not have sufficient permisisons to generate and collect support bundles from NSX-T objects. To generate and collect support bundles from NSX-T objects, a user account with the NSX Administrator role is required. Therfore you have two options for adding NSX-T to a Skyline Collector.

For the collection of product usage data only:

  • NSX Auditor

Important:

If an account with the NSX Auditor role is used to add NSX-T, the following is displayed within Skyline Advisor:

  • On the Collector Details page, the Status of NSX-T is: Insufficient Privileges.

  • On the Initiate Log Transfer page, the Privileges check for NSX-T, and all NSX-T components fail.

If using an account with the NSX Auditor role, you cannot transfer support bundles to VMware GSS using Skyline Log Assist.

For the collection of both product usage data, and transferring support bundles with Log Assist:

  • NSX Enterprise Administrator

Important:

You must assign the required permissions to a user account. Assigning the required permissions to a group, and using a user account within that group to add NSX-T to the Skyline Collector fails privileges check within Skyline Advisor.

For detailed instructions for how to create a user account with the given permissions, see Knowledge Base Article 59661.
