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 Tier-0 gateways to the physical network. If a different routing protocol such as OSPF is used for VxBlock System uplinks, the BGP routes from VMware NSX-T Data Center are redistributed into OSPF.
