This guide describes how to configure Abiquo to create the NSX infrastructure for each Virtual Datacenter according to the following blueprint:
For each Virtual Datacenter Abiquo will create the ESG and connect the uplink to the configured network.
The following properties are global to the platform and configured in the /opt/abiquo/config/abiquo.properties file:
|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||Identifier (in VCenter) of the datastore where Abiquo will deploy the ESG.|
|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.|
After you configure the global properties, register the NSX installation in the Abiquo datacenter. Select the desired Abiquo Datacenter and go to the Network > Devices tab to create a new device:
In the popup, enter the details of the NSX you want to configure.
NSX plugin type
When selecting the plugin type, make sure to select the nsx-gateway.
After you have added the device to Abiquo, all virtual datacenters that the tenant creates will deploy the NSX Gateway blueprint.
