HCX Migration Example

First Job is to create a network profile

A Network Profile is a component of a complete Compute Profile. You will have to create a Network Profile for each network you intend to use with the HCX services. The HCX Manager selects these network profiles when creating a Compute Profile and assignes one or more of four Network Profile functions:

  1. Management Network
  2. Uplink Network
  3. vMotion Network
  4. vSphere Replication Network

With your browser open on the Enterprise HCX Manager, go to Infrastructure -> Interconnect -> Multi-Site Service Mesh and select the Network Profiles.

An HCX Network profile is a pool of available IPs on a specific subnet. HCX will use this pool of IPs to install the HCX service appliances. The first network profile created in this demo is for the Management subnet.
