Every time a VDC is deployed, Abiquo will create a NSX edge and connect it the uplink network to provide gateway, router, firewall, load balancing and SNAT services to the VMs inside the VDC.
The following properties are global to the platform and must be configured in the Server and Remote Services appliances:
|abiquo.nsx.transport-zone||The transport zone where the networks created by Abiquo will be attached.|
|abiquo.nsx.edge.cluster-id||Identifier (in VCenter) of the cluster where Abiquo will deploy the ESG.|
|abiquo.nsx.edge.datastore-id||CSV list of identifiers (in VCenter) of the datastores where Abiquo can deploy the ESG appliances according to the datastore-policy|
Allocation policy for selection of datastores to deploy ESG appliances.
|Id of the port group where Abiquo will attach the ESG uplink.|
|abiquo.nsx.edge.public-network-cidr||Network range where the ESG uplink IP and the "public" load balancer IPs will be taken from. It must be a range dedicated to Abiquo.|
Number of IP addresses that are reserved for NSX in each private network to allocate to load balancers. Default: 20
The following properties can be configured globally or per tenant. See Manage tenant properties to configure them as tenant properties.
To configure properties globally in the API properties, use them with an abiquo. prefix:
Use this property to set the teaming policy for the portGroup that is the backing for the VirtualWire when it is created. This value cannot be changed after it is created.
Size of the ESG appliances.
Values: compact, large, quadlarge, xlarge
|nsx.edge.description||Description to configure in the edges created by Abiquo.|
Whether load balancer acceleration is enabled in the edge load balancers.
