So let us continue down the path of the various commands to help troubleshooting. We have been down the path of the VXLAN via esxcli, NSX Controller and Logical Switching, the NSX Controller and Logical Routing/Bridging, and using net-vdr. Now we can move into troubleshooting from the NSX Edge device.
What is a NSX Edge?
NSX Edge provides network edge security and gateway services to isolate your virtualized networks. You can install an NSX Edge either as a logical (distributed) router or as a services gateway. The NSX Edge logical (distributed) router provides East-West distributed routing with tenant IP address space and data path isolation. Virtual machines or workloads that reside on the same host on different subnets can communicate with one another without having to traverse a traditional routing interface. The NSX Edge gateway connects isolated, stub networks to shared (uplink) networks by providing common gateway services such as DHCP, VPN, NAT, dynamic routing, and Load Balancing. Common deployments of NSX Edge include in the DMZ, VPN Extranets, and multi-tenant Cloud environments where the NSX Edge creates virtual boundaries for each tenant.
