The Tier-0 gateway must establish a connection to each of the upstream Layer 3 devices in its availability zone before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that the NSX-T Edge nodes are successfully peering and that BGP routing is established in VMware Cloud Foundation.

Table 1. NSX-T Edge Nodes
Availability Zone NSX-T Edge Node
Availability Zone 1 sfo01wesg01
Availability Zone 2 sfo02wesg01


  1. Log in to sfo01wesg01 NSX-T Edge node by using a Secure Shell (SSH) client.
    Setting Value
    FQDN sfo01wesg01
    User name admin
    Password nsx_edge_admin_password
  2. Get information about the Tier-0 and Tier-1 service routers and distributed router by running the command. 
    get logical-router
    The output of the command might contains the following configuration.
    UUID VRF LR-ID Name Type Ports
    sample_uuid 0 0 - TUNNEL 3
    sample_uuid 1 5 SR-tier0-01 SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER0 6
    sample_uuid 2 2 DR-tier1-01 DISTRIBUTED_ROUTER_TIER1 5
    sample_uuid 3 3 DR-tier0-01 DISTRIBUTED_ROUTER_TIER0 4
    sample_uuid 4 11 SR-tier1-01 SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER1 5
  3. By using the VRF value for SERVICE_ROUTER_TIER0 connect to the service router for Tier 0.
    vrf 1
    The prompt changes to sfo01wesg01(tier0_sr)>. All commands are associated with this object.
  4. Verify the BGP connections to the neighbors of the service router for Tier 0.
    get bgp neighbor summary
    The BGP State for each neighbor in the edge node availability zone, and each edge node, appears as Established.
  5. Verify that you are receiving routes by using BGP and that multiple routes to BGP-learned networks exist.
    get route
    The routing table contains routes beginning with b, learned via BGP.
  6. Repeat this procedure for the other NSX-T Edge nodes.
