An example for VM-VM path for NSX-T is as follows:

The blue color represents the host node and the grey color represents the edge node. The icons used in the VM path topology are listed on the right side of the screen along with the labels under Path Details. The distributed routers are shown in the same color irrespective of their tiers. The color of the service router in the topology diagram changes as per the associated tier . All the tier 1 components are shown at the same level and all the tier 0 components are shown at a different level. In NSX-T, the edge firewalls are depicted in the diagram.

To plan security for the NSX-T network, you can select the scope as NSXT Layer2 Network and use the following query:

plan NSX-T Layer2 Network ‘<NAME_OF_NSX_T_LOGICAL_SEGMENT>’

You can also obtain the same result by performing the following steps:

  • Select Security from the Navigation side bar.

  • Select NSX-T Layer2 Network as the scope from the drop-down menu.

Note:
  • NSX-T related entities such as NSX-T L2 Network and Tags are available in the scope. You can use these NSX-T related entities in planning, micro-segmentation, and application definition.

  • In The Group by drop-down menu, NSX-T Security Group is a part of Security Tag and Logical Segment is part of VLAN/VXLAN.
