Configuring NSX Groups in the infrastructure managed by VMware NSX-V Manager
December 13, 2023
To configure an NSX Group:
- In the VMware vSphere Client console, start the NSX Group Wizard in the Networking & Security section, Security → Service Composer subsection, on the Security Groups tab.
- Using the Wizard, enter the name of the new NSX Group (for example,
Kaspersky Security Groupor
Protected by Kaspersky) and configure the rules for including virtual machines into this group.
Virtual machines can be added to NSX Groups using the following methods:
- Adding virtual machines to the NSX Group dynamically. The group includes all virtual machines that meet these criteria.
- Inclusion of the specified VMware virtual infrastructure objects into the NSX Group. You can select objects to be included in the group, such as a Datacenter object, VMware cluster, resource pool, or individual virtual machines. By default, the group includes all child objects of the specified object. You can also specify individual virtual infrastructure objects to be excluded from the NSX Group.
You can combine these methods when configuring the rules for including virtual machines into the NSX Group. For example, you can configure dynamic inclusion of virtual machines into the group based on specific criteria, and specify VMware inventory objects that must be excluded from the group.
