In this chapter, we will go over the step-by-step deployment and configuration of multiple NSX features and services. In Chapter 3, NSX Installation and Configuration, we got your environment ready by downloading and deploying NSX. We also went ahead and configured the NSX manager, built our control plane, and deployed the controller clusters, followed by preparing our hosts for network virtualization. This now leaves us with an environment where we can go ahead and configure primary and secondary NSX managers, transport zones, logical switching, L2 bridges, logical routers, and a firewall, and begin to look at an Edge services gateway as well.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Primary and secondary NSX managers
- Transport zones
- Logical switching
- L2 bridges
- Edge Services Gateway
- Logical firewall
