Prepare the ESXi Host for the VM-Series Firewall

Before you deploy the VM-Series firewall, each host in the cluster must have the necessary NSX components that allow the NSX firewall and the VM-Series firewall to work together. The NSX Manager will install the components— the Ethernet Adapter Module (.eam) and the SDK —required to deploy the VM-Series firewall.
  1. On the NSX Manager, select Networking and SecurityInstallationHost Preparation.

  3. If the Installation Status is not ready or a warning displays on screen, click the Resolve link. To monitor the progress of the re-installation attempt, click the More Tasks link and look for the successful completion of the following tasks:
