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 management cluster, deploying two NSX Edge devices and a
Universal Distributed Logical Router ( UDLR).
Create a Universal Logical Switch for Use as the Transit Network for Consolidated SDDC Create a universal logical switch for use as the transit network.
Deploy NSX Edge Devices for North-South Routing for Consolidated SDDC Deploy two NSX Edge devices for North-South Routing.
Disable the Firewall Service for Consolidated SDDC Disable the firewall of the NSX Edge devices. This is required for equal-cost multi-path (ECMP) to operate correctly. Perform this procedure for each NSX Edge device.
Enable and Configure BGP Routing for Consolidated SDDC Enable the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to exchange routing information between the NSX Edge services gateway hosts in a network of autonomous systems (AS).
Verify Peering of Upstream Switches and Establishment of BGP for Consolidated SDDC The NSX Edge devices must 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 Universal Distributed Logical Router for Consolidated SDDC Deploy the universal distributed logical router ( UDLR).
Configure Universal Distributed Logical Router for Dynamic Routing for Consolidated SDDC Configure the Universal Distributed Logical Router ( UDLR) to use dynamic routing.
Verify Establishment of BGP for the Universal Distributed Logical Router for Consolidated SDDC The Universal Distributed Logical router ( UDLR) must establish a connection to the Edge Services Gateways before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that peering is successful and BGP routing has been established.
