Learn NSX – Part-10 (Create Logical Switches)

  • Select Logical Switches under the Networking & Security section.
  • Click the green + icon to add a new logical switch.

    • Enter the logical switch name in the Name text box.
    • Enter a description in the Description text box. For ease of use, add the subnet that will be used within this logical switch.
    • In the Transport Zone selection box, click Change to choose the appropriate transport zone.
    • Leave the Replication Mode option, or select a new one if you want to overlap the transport zone replication mode. By default, the logical switch inherits the control plane mode from the transport zone.
    • Select the Enable IP Discovery check box to enable ARP suppression. This minimizes ARP flooding within individual VXLAN segments.
    • Select the Enable MAC Learning check box to avoid possible traffic loss during VMware vSphere vMotion.
    • Click OK.

Happy Learning 🙂
