One of our customers is preparing to migrate Virtual Machines from VLAN to VXLAN with the NSX L2 Bridge and asked me how to test the L2 Bridge and get confirmation that it is actually configured correctly and operational. All commands in this blog post are from the NSX Troubleshooting Documentation.

We can test if a bridge is functional by issuing a command on the NSX Manager.

VMware NSX and BGP Design and Configuration

Introduction

In this blog post I would like to share how BGP is configured on VMware NSX to automatically update routing information with the physical network.

Design

Recently I was involved in a project where we used BGP to peer the NSX environment with the physical network. The design we did was challenging because of scale. The NSX environment we deployed meant for a multi-tenant Cloud platform scaled for several hundreds of tenants.

VCS to VCVA Converter

In this post I want to share a very cool solution provided by VMware. If you want to migratie your vCenter Server with an external SQL database to an vCenter Server Appliance with the embedded vPostgres database you can use the VCS to VCSA Converter Appliance. The VCS to VCVA Converter Appliance is the winning idea from the 2013 Fling Contest. The Fling migrates the vCenter database, roles, permissions, privileges, certificates and inventory service. The target appliance will run at the same IP address as the source vCenter. Check out the demo from the VMware Labs YouTube channel.
