Deploy and configure the NSX instance for the shared edge and compute cluster in Region A.

1

You must first deploy the NSX Manager virtual appliance. After the NSX Manager is successfully deployed you must connect it to the Compute vCenter Server instance.

2

After the NSX Manager is successfully connected to the Compute vCenter Server, you must promote it to the primary role and deploy the three NSX Controller nodes that form the NSX Controller cluster.

3

You must install the NSX kernel modules on the compute and edge clusters ESXi hosts so that you are able to use NSX.

4

After all deployment tasks are ready, configure the NSX logical network. 

5

After an authorized change is made to a host the Host Profile must be updated to reflect the changes..

6

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).

7

Test the configuration of the NSX logical network using a ping test. A ping test checks if two hosts in a network can reach each other.
