About Tier-0 Logical Routers

In NSX-T Data Center, a Tier-0 logical router provides a gateway service between the logical and physical network. For additional information, see Tier-0 Logical Router in the NSX-T documentation.

To create a new logical switch:

  1. From your browser, log in with admin privileges to NSX Manager at https://NSX-MANAGER-IP-ADDRESS.

  2. In NSX Manager, go to Advanced Networking & Security > Networking > Switching.

  3. Click Add to add a new logical switch.

  4. Configure the logical switch as follows:

    • Name: For example, T0-uplink-LS.
    • Transport Zone: TZ-VLAN.
    • Uplink Teaming Policy Name: Use Default.
    • Admin Status: Up.
    • VLAN: For example, 1206. The VLAN ID should match the ID for the PKS Management VLAN.
  5. Click Add to save the configuration.
