3. Prepare ESXi Hosts for NSX

Lets prepare Cluster for NSX

Click on Networking & Security and navigate to Installation > Host Preparation tab and select the cluster and click on gear button to start installation of NSX VIB’s. NSX will start pushing the required VIB’s on host. Its similar to RPM in linux.

Verify NSX vibs by running esxcli software vib list | grep nsx [root@localhost:~] esxcli software vib list | grep nsx

Modules: vmkload_mod -l | grep nsx

It looks like below once Host is prepared for NSX

netcpa gets deployed during the NSX host preparation stage, netcpa is for communication with controllers. Please check service below on esxi host.

Verify the vsfwd process is in a running state using the following command:

/etc/init.d/vShield-Stateful-Firewall status
