Prepare vSphere Distributed Switching for NSX

 

Prepare a cluster for NSX: add host to cluster
This task is pretty simple.
  • Add the host to vCenter but outside of the cluster.
  • Join it to the same vDS as other hosts in the cluster.
  • Put the host into maintenance mode.
  • Move the host into the cluster and it will auto install the VMkernel modules.
  • Once the install is complete take the host out of maintenance mode.
Prepare a cluster for NSX: remove host from cluster (require a reboot)
From CLI:
  • esxcli software vib remove –vibname=esx-vxlan
  • esxcli software vib remove –vibname=esx-vsip
 
From GUI:
  • Put the host in maintenance mode.
  • Move the host out of the cluster, the VMkernel modules will be removed.
  • Reboot the host.
  • Take the host out of maintenance mode.
Configure the appropriate teaming policy for a given implementation
 
Configure VXLAN Transport parameters according to a deployment plan
