What’s New in Panorama Plugin for VMware NSX 2.0.5

The Panorama plugin for VMware NSX 2.0.5 introduces the following features.

Bypass Proxy Settings Between Panorama and NSX Manager

You can now configure communication between Panorama and NSX Manager to bypass existing proxy server settings configured on Panorama under
Panorama
Setup
Services
Proxy Server
. This command allows Panorama to communicate directly with NSX Manager while maintaining proxied communication for other services.
Use the following command to bypass proxy server settings.
admin@Panorama> request plugins vmware_nsx proxy bypass {yes | no}
Select
yes
to enable proxy bypass and
no
to disable proxy bypass.
Use the following command to view your current proxy bypass configuration.
admin@Panorama> show plugins vmware_nsx proxy
If Panorama is part of an HA pair, configure the same proxy bypass setting on the active and passive Panorama peers.

Configurable Curl Call Timeout

In large NSX environments with tens of thousands of IP addresses, allowing Panorama enough time to retrieve IP address updates from NSX Manager is essential. You can now configure the amount of time—up to 10 minutes—Panorama has to retrieve updates from NSX Manager. By default, Panorama waits up to two minutes (120 seconds) to get IP address updates from NSX Manager. However, if Panorama does not retrieve all the IP address updates within the alloted two minutes, Panorama times out and the update fails.
Use the following command to configure the curl call timeout.
admin@Panorama> request plugins vmware_nsx curl-timeout timeout <seconds>
Use the following command to view the currently configured curl timeout.
show plugins vmware_nsx curl-timeout
If Panorama is part of an HA pair, configure the same timeout value on the active and passive Panorama peers.
