Before you start the deployment of an NSX-T virtual infrastructure domain in VMware Cloud Foundation with two availability zones, your environment must meet target prerequisites and be in a specific starting state. Prepare the SDDC by deploying and configuring the necessary infrastructure and management components.

Planning the Deployment of an NSX-T Workload Domain with Multiple Availability Zones

  • Because of intermittent network loss during migration of the host VMkernel network adapters between virtual switches, perform the configuration during a maintenance window. Schedule a maintenance window that is suitable for your organization and tenants.
  • Allocate time in your maintenance window to run operational verification tests.
  • Plan for any potential impact to tenant workloads while setting up the vSAN stretched cluster in the NSX-T workload domain.
