Hi, In my previous post, I
- Installed NSX-T
- Add Compute manager
- Add the Second NSX-T Manager appliance
- Add the Third NSX-T Manager appliance
- Set NSX-T Manager Virtual IP address
- Add IP Address Pool
- Add Uplink Profiles
- Add Transport Zones
- Prepare Host Transport Nodes
In the NSX-T. Now, I want To add a Segment.
In NSX-T Data Center, segments are virtual layer 2 domains. A segment was earlier called a logical
There are two types of segments in the NSX-T Data Center:
1- Go to the Networking–> Segment –> NSX –> Add Segment
2- Enter a name for your segment, and select a transport zone, I choose overlay.
To create a VLAN-backed segment, add the segment in a VLAN transport zone. Similarly, to create an overlay-backed segment, add the segment in an overlay transport zone.
Connected Gateway: I choose none.
Select this option when you do not want to connect the segment to any upstream gateway (tier-0 or
tier-1). Typically, you want to add a standalone segment in the following scenarios:
- When you want to create a local testing environment for users that are running workloads on the same subnet.
- When east-west connectivity with users on the other subnets is not necessary.
- When north-south connectivity to users outside the data center is not necessary.
- When you want to configure layer 2 bridging or guest VLAN tagging.
I explain other parameters in future posts.
This segment was created on the vCenter VDS switch as a Port Group with a VNI number.
Now, you can assign this port group to your VMs.
