    A little OT, but I like that there’s a glimpse of your folder layout in the first pic. Given your level of expertise I’ve been curious for a while now to see how you break out your VM folder structure / resource pools, and simply what VMs you run where 🙂 The sneak peek isn’t too telling as they’re not expanded, but nice to see. Cheers.

    waiting for the nsx controller portion.
    btw, is the edge router side which perform the function of DR/DFW/VXLAN/Security are on the esxi host kernel side, then it does not need any deployment/provision.

    Looks to be pretty easy to deploy. for a production would you recommend a dedicated cluster, or just install it into an existing cluster.

    Chris, can you briefly elaborate why you would configure the lookup service on manager? Is that to enable authentication of users stored in other identity store like AD to access the manager admin interface?

    Interesting to see that NSX can run on home lab hardware. I’ll need to keep following along in the series, but I’m wondering if there are any limitations if the home lab doesn’t have any NSX compatible networking gear. Will there be NSX functionality that you’ll miss out on?

    This is a very useful series. Do you know if it is possible to register the vCenter via the API, I can’t seem to see anything in the docs but it will make automation a lot more complicated if not!
