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.

Global properties in the file

The following properties are global to the platform and configured in the /opt/abiquo/config/ file:

abiquo.nsx.transport-zoneThe transport zone where the networks created by Abiquo will be attached.
abiquo.nsx.edge.cluster-idIdentifier (in VCenter) of the cluster where Abiquo will deploy the ESG.
abiquo.nsx.edge.datastore-idIdentifier (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.


Adding the NSX device in the Abiquo Datacenter

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.
