Create an IP Pool for VTEP

Tunnel endpoints (TEPs) are the source and destination IP addresses used in the external IP header to identify the ESXi hosts that originate and end the NSX-T encapsulation of overlay frames. The TEP addresses do not need to be routable so you can use any random IP addressing scheme you want. For more information, refer to the NSX-T Data Center documentation.

  1. In the NSX-T Management Console, select the Manager interface (upper right).
  2. Navigate to Networking > IP Address Pool.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Enter a Name, such as TEP-IP-POOL.
  5. Enter an IP range, such as 192.23.213.1 - 192.23.213.10.
  6. Enter a CIDR address, such as 192.23.213.0/24.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Verify that the pool is added.
