VMware NSX and Zerto - Testing DR Plan

VMware NSX and Zerto - Testing DR Plan


In a few prior blogs I posted on this site and on the VMware Network Virtualization blog site, I described and demoed how VMware NSX and SRM with vSphere Replication combined provide for an enhanced disaster recovery (DR) solution. SRM also provides additional integration with NSX when Storage Policy Protection Groups (SPPGs) are used by providing the ability to automate network mappings. One of the great things about the NSX-V platform, is it can be used with any DR orchestration tool that supports the VMware vSphere ESXi hypervisor. Some of the tools customers are using with NSX include VMware SRM, Dell EMC RP4VM, Zerto, and Veeam. As SRM was discussed and demonstrated in a prior blog, Zerto and NSX together is explained in more detail below. (more…)

Reset VMware NSX-V DFW to Default Setting via NSX REST API with Python

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

I’ve been playing with the VMware NSX-V 6.2 REST API using both a browser based REST API client and Python. While I was exploring different methods, I deleted the default NSX-V Distributed Firewall (DFW) L3 section via REST API call within Python. Unfortunately, this prevents me from being able to add any rules to the NSX-V DFW, since rules must be added to a section, and I deleted the default DFW L3 section. The only way to add another section through the VMware vSphere web client is to right click an existing section and select “Add section,” however since I only had the default section which I deleted, this is no longer an option.
