Section 2.3.1 - Configure and Manage Logical Routers

Logical routers are very powerful and dynamic tools.  When you deploy a Distributed Logical Router you are deploying a management VM that is the main interface to managing the Logical router VIB on each ESX host.


Logical routers need a default gateway configured on the UPLINK interface to know what the next hop is in the routing sequence.  You can configure the default gateway during router deployment as shown earlier or you can configure it after as I will show here.


1. Select your LR from the Edge manager list




2. Click on Manage -> Routing -> Global Configuration.



3. Click the edit button and choose the uplink interface and the Gateway for that network.    



Next we will discuss routing and routing protocol configuration.
