In this section, we will look at a few configuration steps for some common actions that you will perform on the Edge services gateway. In a production environment, you will often perform these configurations either during initial setup or after.
We will be looking at adding a sub-interface, a force-sync NSX Edge with NSX Manager, configuring remote syslog servers, and redeploying an NSX Edge appliance.
An NSX Edge services gateway can have up to ten internal, external (physical), or trunk interfaces, while an Edge distributed router can have up to eight uplink interfaces and up to a thousand internal (sub) interfaces.
A sub-interface, or an internal interface, is a logical interface that is created and mapped to the physical interface. Sub-interfaces are simply a division of a physical interface into multiple logical interfaces. This logical interface uses the parent physical interface to move data. Remember that you cannot use sub...
