The tables in Appendix C: Cloud Foundation on VxRail VLANs outline the VLANs to support the Application Virtual Network. At the time of deployment, Cloud Builder will configure two virtual switch portgroups on the virtual distributed switch configured for the VxRail cluster and assign the VLANs for the NSX-T edge appliance uplinks to each portgroup respectively in trunk mode. Cloud Builder will then connect the first NSX-T Edge node uplink to the first portgroup, and the second NSX-T Edge node uplink to the second portgroup.
- Select the VLANs to enable the BGP peering. The selected VLAN will be configured into each NSX-T edge node during Cloud Foundation on VxRail initial deployment.
- The IP address ranges for eBGP peering between the external routers and NSX-T Tier-0 Gateways in CIDR format. Make sure the selected IP address range is large enough to support future growth of additional NSX-T edge nodes for other VI workload domains.
- Select the gateway IP addresses to be assigned to the VLAN configured on the upstream adjacent switches. The gateway IP addresses are not required by Cloud Builder, but are required to complete the BGP peering and route sharing process.
