The NSX-T edge nodes must be able to pass network traffic over an edge overlay network. This edge overlay network is separate from the NSX-T host overlay network in that it enables communications between the ESX-T edge nodes only.
- The selected VLAN must be configured on each leaf switch to enable routing over the edge overlay network.
- The selected VLAN is configured into each NSX-T edge node during Cloud Foundation on VxRail initial deployment.
- An IP address from the selected ranges is assigned to each NSX-T edge node to enable connectivity over the NSX-T edge overlay network.
