A security group is a logical container that
assembles guests across multiple ESXi hosts in the cluster. When
you create a dynamic address group that meets the right criteria
and commit your changes, a corresponding security group is created on
the NSX-V Manager. Creating security groups are required to manage
and secure the guests; to understand how security groups enable
policy enforcement, see Policy
Enforcement using Dynamic Address Groups.
Configure a dynamic address group for each security
group required for your deployment.
Shared dynamic address groups are not supported on
the VM-Series for VMware NSX-V.
Verify that you are configuring the dynamic address
groups in a device group associated with an NSX-V service definition.
and enter a

Define the match criteria.
For the dynamic address group to become a security group
in NSX-V Manager, the match criteria string must be enclosed in single
quotes with the prefix _nsx_ followed by the exact name of the Address
Group. For example,
Repeat this process for each security group you require.
Verify that the corresponding security groups are created
on the NSX-V Manager.
Verify that your dynamic address groups appear as
security groups on the Security Groups list. Each security group
is prefixed with your service definition followed by an underscore
and the dynamic address group name.
