Log in to the vSphere Web Client.

2

Click Networking & Security and then click NSX Managers.

3

Click an NSX Manager in the Name column and then click the Manage tab.

4

Click the Security Tags tab.

5

Click the New Security Tag (add) icon.

6

Type a name and description for the tag and click OK.
