If the use cases planned for the Cloud Foundation on VxRail VI workload domains include the requirement for the vRealize applications, the leaf switches at the top of each rack must also be configured to support the Application Virtual Network.
- Configure two VLANs to support the NSX-T edge uplinks.
- Configure a VLAN to support the NSX-T edge overlay network.
- The NSX-T edge uplink network and the NSX-T edge overlay network require static IP addresses. Apply Layer 3 settings to the VLANs on the leaf switches representing the NSX-T edge uplink network and the NSX-T edge overlay network.
- Configure the VLANs on the switch ports that are supporting Cloud Foundation/NSX network traffic.
- If two Ethernet ports per node are reserved for Cloud Foundation for VxRail, then VxRail network traffic and Cloud Foundation/NSX network traffic is shared.
- For a 4-port and 6-port configuration, VxRail network traffic and Cloud Foundation/NSX network traffic is segmented.
