Adding the NSX Manager

Use the Add NSX Manager page to add the NSX Manager in to the Security Director database. Based on the NSX details provided, the Security Director automatically fetches the associated VMware vCenter Server hostname from NSX. You have an option to select the firewall type for either the east-west traffic, north-south traffic, or both.

To add a NSX Manager:

  1. Select Devices > NSX Managers.

    The NSX Managers page appears.

  2. Click the add icon (+).

    The Add NSX Manager page appears.

  3. Complete the configuration by using the guidelines in Table 150.
  4. Click Finish to complete the configuration.

    After adding the NSX Manager, you must register the vSRX VM as a Juniper security service with the NSX Manager. See Registering Security Services.
