NSX-T: Missing locale data for the locale “XX”.

So, as you may know, I am from the Netherlands (or Holland, although technically I am not, but that is a different discussion ;)). So within my lab-environment I sometimes use Dutch as the language-setting, for instance within Firefox, the browser I use(d) to configure NSX-T. But this issue also occurs in Chrome. Within IE …

Load Balancing with NSX-T – Part 1

So after I looked at the installation, the fabric and routing and switching, it is time to take a look at the higher level networking functions within NSX-T, like Load Balancing. The functionality itself has not changed very much since NSX-T (compared to V), but the way that it is consumed is different. As described in an earlier blog (Routing with NSX-T (part 1)), NSX-T uses multiple entities within it's fabric. Two of which being tier-0 and tier-1 gateways and load balancing can only exist on a tier-1 gateway. So when you use Load Balancing within NSX-T you have to deploy both tier-0 and tier-1 components.

Routing with NSX-T (part 3) – High Availability with ECMP and BGP

Okay, one more thing to do, get redundant! In the topology that I created, I use one Edge Node within a Cluster, so when that edge node fails, all traffic will seize. So we need redundancy. In this post I am going to write about ECMP and combine it with BGP. I'm not going to …

Migrating from Standard Switch to NVDS with NSX-T 2.4

So, I have started developing my knowledge around NSX-T. No formal training, but I do have an environment, in which I can try out things. So I set up a basic NSX-T environment, consisting of one NSX Manager/Controller (starting with 2.4 this is a combined function, which can be clustered), and I created all the …
