After you upgrade the control and data plane of the NSX core components, propagate the upgrade to the NSX Edge services gateways, universal distributed logical router and load balancer instances. 

Prerequisites

All ESXi hosts in Region A and Region B have had their NSX VIBs updated to the appropriate version matching the NSX Manager.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Management vCenter Server by using the vSphere Web Client.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://sfo01m01vc01.sfo01.rainpole.local/vsphere-client.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.

      Setting

      Value

      User name

      administrator@vsphere.local

      Password

      vsphere_admin_password

  2. From the Home menu, select Networking & Security.
  3. In the Navigator pane, under Networking & Security, click NSX Edges.
  4. On the NSX Edges page, select the IP address of the NSX Manager instance from the NSX Manager drop-down menu.

    Region

    NSX Manager Instance

    IP Address

    Region A

    NSX Manager for the management cluster

    172.16.11.65

    NSX Manager for the shared edge and compute cluster

    172.16.11.66

    Region B

    NSX Manager for the management cluster

    172.17.11.65

    NSX Manager for the shared edge and compute cluster

    172.17.11.66

    The edge devices in the scope of the NSX Manager appear.

  5. For each NSX Edge instance, select Upgrade Version from the Actions menu and in the Upgrade Edge confirmation dialog box, click Yes.

    Perform the upgrade in the following order as to minimize disruption on both the management and shared and edge compute pods. Allow each NSX Edge instance to be updated before proceeding with update of the next NSX Edge instance.

    Order

    Management Edge in Region A

    Management Edge in Region B

    Compute Edge in Region A

    Compute Edge in Region B

  6. After all the NSX edges are upgraded successfully, verify that the Status column for the edge device shows Deployed, and the Version column contains the upgraded version of 6.3.3.
