We are going to walk through the preparation of our ESXi hosts to become Transport Nodes. Once complete, we will be able to start applying NSX-T features and policies to your data center deployment.

This process is very straight forward with just a couple of clicks. However, there are some prerequisites that you need to have completed prior to preparing hosts as transport nodes.

Prerequisites:

  1. Create the transport zones you wish your transport nodes to participate. (How-To) Create NSX-T Transport Zones.
  2. Pre-configure uplink profiles for the transport zones you wish to apply to your transport nodes (hosts). (How-To) Configure NSX-T Uplink Profiles.
  3. (optional) Register your NSX-T manager with a compute manager (vCenter). (How-To) Register a Compute Manager with NSX-T.

There are a couple of ways to prepare our ESXi hosts to become transport nodes within our NSX-T infrastructure. The first way we are going to walk through…
