NSX for vSphere creates a network virtualization layer on top of which all virtual networks are created. This layer is an abstraction between the physical and virtual networks. You configure NSX dynamic routing within the compute and edge clusters, deploying two NSX Edge devices and a Universal Distributed Logical Router (UDLR).

1

Create universal and global transit logical switches for use as the transit networks in the cluster.

2

Deploy NSX Edge Devices for North-South routing in the shared edge and compute cluster.

3

Disable the firewall of the two NSX Edge services gateways.

4

Enable the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to exchange routing information between the NSX Edge services gateways.

5

The NSX Edge devices need to establish a connection to each of it's upstream BGP switches before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that the NSX Edges devices are successfully peering, and that BGP routing has been established.

7

Configure the universal distributed logical router (UDLR) in the shared edge and compute cluster to use dynamic routing.

8

The universal distributed logical router (UDLR) needs to establish a connection to Edge Services Gateway before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that the UDLR is successfully peering, and that BGP routing has been established.

10

Configure the distributed logical router (DLR) in the shared edge and compute cluster to use dynamic routing.

11

The distributed logical router (DLR) needs to establish a connection to Edge Services Gateway before BGP updates can be exchanged. Verify that the DLR is successfully peering, and that BGP routing has been established.
