BGP routing configuration

VMware NSX-T Data Center on VxBlock Systems requires that you enable the BGP on the ToR switches. Also, a BGP routing process must be created on the ToR switches and associated with the appropriate Autonomous System (AS) identifier.

VMware recommends the BGP dynamic routing protocol for peering T0 gateways to the physical network. If a different routing protocol such as OSPF is used for VxBlock System customer uplinks, the BGP routes from VMware NSX-T Data Center are redistributed into OSPF.
