NSX Load Balancing for VMware Unified Access Gateway – Part2

In this post we shall go over the remaining configuration on “Pools” and “Virtual Servers” of the NSX Load Balancing for VMware Unified Access Gateway.

4. Configure the Load Balancing – Pools

  • Overall we will be creating four Pools as follows:
    Pools
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new pool
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-POOL-8443
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For Algorithm, pick IP-HASH
    • Leave Algorithm Parameters blank
    • For Monitors, pick default_tcp_monitor
      Pools_8443
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new pool
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-POOL-4172TCP
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For Algorithm, pick IP-HASH
    • Leave Algorithm Parameters blank
    • For Monitors, pick default_tcp_monitor
      Pools_4172_TCP
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new pool
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-POOL-4172UDP
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For Algorithm, pick IP-HASH
    • Leave Algorithm Parameters blank
    • For Monitors, pick default_tcp_monitor
      Pools_4172_UDP
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new pool
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-POOL-443
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For Algorithm, pick IP-HASH
    • Leave Algorithm Parameters blank
    • For Monitors, pick default_https_monitor
      Pools_443

5. Configure the Load Balancer – Virtual Servers

  • Overall we will be creating six virtual servers as follows:
    Virtual_Server
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Acceleration
    • Set the Application Profile to XX-External-UDP
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-8443UDP
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For IP Address, select IP address by click on the link
    • For Protocol select UDP
    • In Port/Port Range type 8443
    • Set Default Pool select XXX-UAG-Pool-8443
    • Everything else should be default
      UDP_Virtual_Server
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Acceleration
    • Set the Application Profile to XX-External-UDP
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-4172UDP
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For IP Address, select IP address by click on the link
    • For Protocol select UDP
    • In Port/Port Range type 4172
    • Set Default Pool select XXX-UAG-Pool-4172UDP

      UDP_Virtual_Server
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Acceleration
    • Set the Application Profile to XX-External-TCP
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-8443TCP
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For IP Address, select IP address by click on the link
    • For Protocol select TCP
    • In Port/Port Range type 8443
    • Set Default Pool select XXX-UAG-Pool-8443
    • Everything else should be default
      TCP_Virtual_Server
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Acceleration
    • Set the Application Profile to XX_external_ssl_offload
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-443HTTPS
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For IP Address, select IP address by click on the link
    • For Protocol select TCP
    • In Port/Port Range type 443
    • Set Default Pool select XXX-UAG-Pool-443
    • Everything else should be default
      HTTPS_Virtual_Server
  • Click on the green plus sign to add a new Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Virtual Server
    • Click on Enable Acceleration
    • Set the Application Profile to XX_external_tcp
    • In the Name field, type: XXX-UAG-4172TCP
    • Leave the Description blank
    • For IP Address, select IP address by click on the link

    • In Port/Port Range type 4172
    • Set Default Pool select XXX-UAG-Pool-4172TCP
    • Everything else should be default
      TCP_Virtual_Server

Previous configuration around the “Global Configuration”, “Application Profiles” and “Service Monitoring” the NSX Load Balancing for VMware Unified Access Gateway – Part1

We haven’t configured any “Application Rules”. I hope you find these steps useful and don’t have to invent the wheel when it comes to NSX LB for VMware UAG.

Thanks,
