  • 1.  Support for single Global Manager

    Posted Sep 14, 2022 12:30 AM

    Hi Folks,

    Single NSX Local mangers are supported by VMware, but what about Global managers?

    I know that recommended practice is to deploy 3 global managers for the active GM cluster and 3 for the stanby but does VMware support using a single Active GM and single Standby GM?

    If so - can you give a link to where this support is documented by VMware?

    I have looked through the docs at docs.vmware.com and have not been able to find this.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You can have a single Local or Global NSX Manager in Lab or POC environment but it is not recommended for the Production environment. In Production, it is always recommended to have 3 NSX Managers. There is a GM-Active design model for the Federation where you can deploy One Global NSX Manager at each datacenter. There are a few requirements for this design. You can find more details about the requirements in NSX-T Multi-Location Design Guide.
