If NSX is installed on-premise, you must register your on-premise NSX Manager to CX Connector. If NSX is not installed on-premise, you can skip this configuration.
Verify that NSX Manager instance is installed and configured in the on-premise environment. If NSX Manager is not deployed in the on-premise environment, vCloud Director Extender deploys an NSX for vSphere Standalone Edge - Client 6.3.0 that is included in the vCloud Director Extender OVA file.
Verify that you have finished the initial vCloud Director Extender tenant configuration by using the OnPrem Setup UI Setup wizard. For more information, see Tenant Configuration.
