You assign host names and IP addresses according to the VLAN setup and domain configuration in VMware Cloud Foundation. Before you start the edge deployment, for assigning FQDNs and IP addresses to the NSX-T Edge management interfaces, add records for the bare-metal NSX-T Edge nodes to the external DNS servers in the SDDC.

Table 1. DNS Records for the NSX-T Edge Nodes
