This chapter covers a quick validation of the entire solution. A combination of ping and traceflow are used between a combination of three virtual machines and a loopback interface. Two of the VMs are associated with one segment, Web, and the other VM is associated with the segment, App. The loopback interface represents all external networks.
Figure 29 shows the three virtual machines, Web01, Web02, and App01, are running on two separate hosts. Web01 and Web02 are associated with the Web segment, and App01 is configured in the App segment. Web01 is in rack 1, and the other two virtual machines are in rack 2. In this test, only two of the four VxRail nodes are used. The router ID for Spine02, 10.0.1.2/32, is used to test connectivity from the NSX-T overlay to the switch underlay.
