Building an NSX-T Bring Your Own Topology (BYOT) for VMware Enterprise PKS – Part 1

VMware Enterprise PKS Management Console recently got released to GA which provides an automated and unified way to deploy Enterprise PKS. This comes as an OVA appliance which is deployed on a management network and provides a very nice GUI to deploy Enterprise PKS components in a fully automated way. I started working on Enterprise…… Continue reading Building an NSX-T Bring Your Own Topology (BYOT) for VMware Enterprise PKS – Part 1

I recently got to work on few NSX-T projects including Enterprise PKS where the management and compute clusters used a 2-pNIC host networking. This was not based on VCF, so I needed to manually prepare all the 2-pnic ESXi Compute Clusters for NSX-T in a consistent and controlled way. These were some of the requirements…… Continue reading Preparing 2-pNIC Compute Clusters for NSX-T using Transport Node Profiles and Network Mappings
