When will NSX-T arrive in VMUG Advantage

  • 1.  When will NSX-T arrive in VMUG Advantage

    Posted 12-13-2019 07:47 AM
    This has been asked a few time last year (and found some threads on twitters from last year). But after a year it is safe to say that NSX-T is the way forward for NSX, as also confirmed by VMWare on VMworld. It would fit the philosophy of the EVALExperience better if NSX-T would be included instead of NSX-V. But at this moment NSX-V is still offered in the EVALExperience as part as the Advantage membership.

    Is it known when the EVALExperience will have the NSX-T binaries available? Or will the networking stack be stripped from the EVALExperience, which is how it feels right now, since if one would start an Evaluation of NSX now it is advised to go with NSX-T.

    Hi Daan, Glad to hear that NSX-T is coming soon as we are planning to upgrade from NSX-V​

    This does need to be escalated - we really do need to be able to download.

    Do you have capacity to try and roll out VCF in your lab? It looks like NSX isn't directly installed by it, and it's another way to get the bits.

    The NSX-V license key installs on NSX-T, do you have a way to download the OVA?

    I booted a tinycorelinux iso with the vcf vmdk (extracted from the ova) mounted in the vm. Browsing through the SDDC foundation bundle iso, I see that NSX-V is included:

    No luck in VCF either :-(.

    So I have no way of getting the NSX-T binary at this moment :-(

    That's disappointing.

    I'd recommend escalating that to your account team (I have repeatedly as well) as this is a systemic issue with VMUG Advantage - vSphere 6.7 was the same way...

    I was able to get NSX-T images by requesting them from my regional SE - do you have that as an option?

    I'm also pursuing the option of requesting the files via my contacts within VMware. Just hoped top increase my chances by also asking the question here...
