NSX for vSphere creates a network virtualization layer on top of which all virtual networks are created. This layer is an abstraction between the physical and virtual networks. You configure NSX dynamic routing within the consolidated cluster, deploying two NSX Edge devices and configure a Distributed Logical Router (DLR).
Create a Logical Switch for use as the Transit Network in ROBO Create a Logical Switch for use as the transit network in your ROBO deployment.
Deploy NSX Edge Devices for North-South Routing in ROBO
Disable the Firewall Service in ECMP Edges in ROBO Disable the firewall of the NSX Edge devices, this is required for equal-cost multi-path (ECMP) to operate correctly.
Enable and Configure BGP Routing in ROBO The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a protocol for exchanging routing information between gateway hosts (each with its own router) in a network of autonomous systems (AS).
Verify Peering of Upstream Switches and Establishment of BGP in ROBO The NSX Edge devices need to establish a connection to each of the upstream BGP switches before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that the NSX Edges devices are successfully peering, and that BGP routing has been established.
Deploy the Distributed Logical Router in ROBO Deploy the distributed logical router (DLR).
Configure Distributed Logical Router for Dynamic Routing in ROBO Configure the distributed logical router (DLR) to use dynamic routing in ROBO.
Verify Establishment of BGP for the Distributed Logical Router in ROBO Verify that the DLR is successfully peering, and that BGP routing has been established.
