When adding an NSX Endpoint to vRO – I came across an interesting error
This was quite puzzling as all the other views of the Endpoint worked.
Then I remembered – I am using NSX at this stage only for vCD and the only Edges available / deployed, were deployed via vCD as well.
When using NSX in conjunction with vCloud Director, NSX deploys Edges in compatibility mode. The Edges deployed via vCD are version 5.5 – even though NSX 6.x is deploying them
vCD View of the Edge
C# Client View of the Edge
And the NSX View of the Edge
As soon as I upgraded the Edge via the NSX Manager to version 6.2.2 – the error disappeared
PLEASE NOTE: Edge 6.x are NOT supported by vCloud Director – this is a lab environment and the upgrade was therefore done to explain the problem – do not upgrade vCD Edges using the NSX Manager in a vCD Production Environment !!!!
So I guess the point is – if you use NSX in conjunction with vCloud Director – you may not be able to use vRO to manage Edge gateways …
It seems even if you have version 6.x Edges alongside 5.5 Edges – the view remains broken until all Edges are based on the version of the NSX Manager.
