Objective 5.4: Configure and Manage Logical Routers

  • NSX Edge logical router does routing and bridging functions only
  • VMs on dissimilar subnets can communicate with one another without having to go across a traditional route interface like NSX Edge services gw
  • If you dont name the Edge Appliance, the Edge ID is displayed in CLI
  • must specify mgmt interface for router
  • interface for out of band access to edge
  • Edge must have at least one internal interface before it can be deployed
  • kernel modules + control vm
  • NSX Edges > “+” > Logical (Distributed) Router

 

  • Needed Components
    • Prepared cluster (DLR is a kernel mod)
    • NSX Edge DLR Control VM
    • Logical switch
    • Port Gorups
    • Uplinks

 

  • Things to know or review
    • OSPF
      • how is route redistributed
      • backbone vs normal areas
      • stubby areas
      • forwarding vs protocol address
      • authentication options
    • BGP
      • iBGP vs eBGP
      • forward and protocol address
      • remote AS
      • weight, keepalive
      • BGP filtering
      • peering
