VMware NSX Course

NSX enables the creation of entire networks in software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware. These networks can be provisioned in minutes, without the need to modify the application.


Introduction to VMware NSX

At VMworld 2013 in San Francisco, VMware introduced VMware NSX, which does for networking what ESX did for servers. Although vSphere simplified the deployment and management of VMs and applications, network administrators had to manually configure physical switches, routers, firewalls, and load balancers to support those VMs and applications. Now, VMWare NSX provides a means to configure and manage all layers of networking from a single pane of glass and assign network policies directly to the VMs. Here are some details

• NSX provides software defined networking.
• NSX provides a network hypervisor that manages network layers 2 through 7 (L2 to L7) services.
• NSX allows us to create scalable networks, supporting multiple tenants, on demand without touching the physical network.
• When applications (VMs) are deployed, updated, or retired, NSX automatically adjusts associated L2 to L7 services.
Traditionally, single-tier applications required manual switch configuration(L2), multi-tier applications required manual router configuration (L3), externally accessible applications required manual firewall configuration (L4), and critical applications required manual load balancer configuration (L5). Now, all of this could be implemented utilizing NSX and configuring policies.
This means that when we create new virtual networks, we do not need to touch physical switches / network, routers, firewall, etc.

What is Service Console?

The service console is developed based up on Redhat Linux Operating system, it is used to manage the VMKernel

What are the basic commands to troubleshoot connectivity between vSphere Client /vCenter to ESX server?

service mgmt–vmware restart  (restarts host agent(vmware–hostd) on vmware esx server)

service vmware-vpxa restrat (restarts Vcenter agent service)

service network restart (restarts management networks on ESX)

What is vCenter Agent?

VC agent is an agent installed on ESX server which enables communication between VC and ESX server. This Agent will be installed on ESX/ESXi will be done when you try to add the ESx host in Vcenter.

What is VMKernel ?

VMWare Kernel is a Proprietary kernel  of vmware and is not based on any of the flavors of Linux operating systems, .VMkernel requires an operating system to boot and manage the kernel. A service console is being provided when VMWare kernel is booted. Only service console is based up on Redhat Linux OS not VMkernel.

What is the use of Service Console port ?

Service console port group required to manage the ESX server and it acts as the management network for the ESX. vCenter/vSphere Client uses the service console IP’s to communicate with the ESX server. This is one of the frequently asked VMware interview questions.
