Configure NSX-T Data Center network components using Azure VMware Solution
An Azure VMware Solution private cloud comes with NSX-T Data Center by default. The private cloud comes pre-provisioned with an NSX-T Data Center Tier-0 gateway in Active/Active mode and a default NSX-T Data Center Tier-1 gateway in Active/Standby mode. These gateways let you connect the segments (logical switches) and provide East-West and North-South connectivity.
After deploying Azure VMware Solution, you can configure the necessary NSX-T Data Center objects from the Azure portal. It presents a simplified view of NSX-T Data Center operations a VMware administrator needs daily and is targeted at users not familiar with NSX-T Manager.
You'll have four options to configure NSX-T Data Center components in the Azure VMware Solution console:
Segments - Create segments that display in NSX-T Manager and vCenter Server. For more information, see Add an NSX-T Data Center segment using the Azure portal.
DHCP - Create a DHCP server or DHCP relay if you plan to use DHCP. For more information, see Use the Azure portal to create a DHCP server or relay.
Port mirroring – Create port mirroring to help troubleshoot network issues. For more information, see Configure port mirroring in the Azure portal.
DNS – Create a DNS forwarder to send DNS requests to a designated DNS server for resolution. For more information, see Configure a DNS forwarder in the Azure portal.
You'll still have access to the NSX-T Manager console, where you can use the advanced settings mentioned and other NSX-T Data Center features.
