After you convert an Edge Gateway to an Advanced Gateway, you can use the vCloud Director Tenant Portal to configure NSX services on the gateway.

Prerequisites

You must be a system administrator or an organization administrator to convert an Edge Gateway to an Advanced Gateway.

Procedure

  1. Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Edge Gateways in the left pane.
  2. On the Edge Gateways tab, right-click the Edge Gateway name and select Convert to Advanced Gateway.

    The system prompts you to confirm your choice, then converts the gateway.

    Important:

    After you convert an Edge Gateway, existing vCloud API clients might not be able to complete some operations on the Edge Gateway. See http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2147625.
