If NSX Edge services do not work as expected after a force sync, you can redeploy the NSX Edge instance.


Log in to the vSphere Web Client.


Click Networking & Security and then click NSX Edges.


Select an NSX Edge instance.


Click the More Actions (More Actions icon) icon and select Redeploy Edge.

TheNSX Edge virtual machine is replaced with a new virtual machine and all services are restored. If redeploy does not work, power off the NSX Edge virtual machine and redeploy NSX Edge again.


Redeploy may not work in the following cases.

Resource pool on which theNSX Edge was installed is no longer in the vCenter inventory or its MoId (identifier in vCenter Server) has changed.

Datastore on which the NSX Edge was installed is corrupted/unmounted or in-accessible.

dvportGroups on which the NSX Edge interfaces were connected are no longer in the vCenter inventory or their MoId (identifier in vCenter server) has changed.

If any of the above is true, you must update the MoId of the resource pool, datastore, or dvPortGroup using a REST API call. See NSX API Programming Guide.
