When you configure the hosts in Availability Zone 2 as NSX-T transport nodes, NSX-T Manager installs the NSX-T kernel modules on the hosts as VIB files. Because you add manually the hosts in Availability Zone 2,

The NSX-T kernel modules provide services such as distributed routing and distributed firewall. You configure the same settings on all ESXi hosts in Availability Zone 2.
