Configure GigaVUE-VM on NSX-V

GigaVUE-FM integrates with VMware NSX-V as a partner service, using NSX-V Service Insertion. Service Insertion allows partner services such as Gigamon Traffic Visibility to integrate with NSX-V. When the NSX-V Manager is registered in GigaVUE-FM, a Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service is registered with NSX-V. The Traffic Visibility Service is then installed on the NSX-V compute clusters through the vCenter UI. Installing the Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service deploys the GigaVUE-VM Service VMs to each host in the cluster. Security policies are then created that will make a copy of the network traffic and forward it to the Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service.

The chapter includes the following major sections:

■   Prerequisites for Integrating GigaVUE-VM with NSX-V
■   Integrate GigaVUE-VM with NSX-V
■   Upgrade GigaVUE-VM on NSX-V
■   Remove Gigamon Service from NSX-V and GigaVUE‑FM

This chapter also describes the following steps for integrating GigaVUE-FM and VMware NSX-V:

■   Step 1: Create Users in VMware vCenter and GigaVUE‑FM
■   Step 2: Register NSX-V vCenter in GigaVUE-FM
■   Step 3: Upload the GVM OVA Image
■   Step 4: Register NSX-V Manager in GigaVUE-FM
■   Step 5: Install Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service on vCenter Clusters
■   Step 6: Configure GigaVUE-FM Tunnels and Virtual Maps
■   Step 7: Create NSX-V Security Group and Security Policy

Note:   These steps assume that is installed and configured.
