1/Overview:

– NSX Edge provides routing services and connectivity to networks that are external to the NSX-T Data Center deployment. VMware recommends deploying a cluster of two NSX Edge nodes for high availability (routing traffice between external physical network and internal overlay network).

– If configure VM with VLAN segment still using gateway of external physical network. If using overlay segment for VM using gateway related to edge configuration (T1 virtual router on Edge cluster/node). NSX-T Edge node can be deployed as appliance VM or bare metal.

– Edge appliance can run multiple virtual routers and placed in a cluster for redundancy. 2 Virtual router running on Edge node: T1 for internal overlay network routing and T0 configured BGP peering with external physical routers for not overlay traffic).T-0 virtual router on Edge cluster can acts as active-active or active -standby but if using active-active not support some statefull service like NAT.

– TEP VLAN for transport node hosting Edge VM recommend different form TEP VLAN of transport node for workload VM (but in lab/testting environment same VLAN still work). VDS on ESXi hosting Edge VM also need enable Jumbo Frame on VDS (TEP VDS, Edge VDS using for Edge VLAN transport zone-to external router and Edge Overlay Transport zone).

– Design networking  of Edge VM and ESXi transport node:

II/Edge Cluster Deployment:

1/Create VLAN transport zone and VLAN segement for Edge VM:

– Menu System > Fabric > Transport Zones

– Click ADD ZONE

2/Add VLAN segment using for Edge VM uplink to external router:

– Menu Networking > Segments

– Click ADD SEGMENT

3/ Create Edge Uplink Profile:

– Menu System > Profiles

– Click ADD PROFILE

4/Deploy Edge VM:

Menu System > Fabric > Nodes > Tab Edge Transport Nodes

– Click ADD EDGE NODE

5/ Create Edge Cluster And Add New Edge Node To Cluster:

– Menu System > Fabric > Nodes > Tab Edge Cluster

– Click ADD EDGE CLUSTER
