About the NSX Managers Page

To access this page, click Security Director > Devices > NSX Managers.

Use the NSX Managers page to discover the NSX Manager and perform service registration of the vSRX VM with the NSX Manager. The NSX Manager is added as a device in the Security Director and its inventory is synchronized with Security Director.

Before you Begin

  1. Install the Policy Enforcer Release 17.1 OVA image.
    1. After the installation is complete, log in to the Policy Enforcer VM through SSH. Run the service commands to verify the status of the following services:
      	service nsxmicro status
      	service  sd_event_listener status
      	service nsx_callback_listener status
      	service  ssh_listener status
    2. If services are stopped, initiate the services again by running the following commands:
      	service nsxmicro start
      	service  sd_event_listener start
      	service nsx_callback_listener start
      	service  ssh_listener start
  2. Select Security Director > Administration > Policy Enforcer > Settings, and add Policy Enforcer to Security Director. For more information, see Identifying the Policy Enforcer Virtual Machine In Security Director.
