NSX Lab – Integrate NSX Manager with vCenter Server

Once the nsx manage is deployed it needs to be registered with vCenter
From a web browser open https://<manager ip>

nsxlab-8

 

Then choose Manage vCenter Registration

nsxlab-9

 

First configure the lookup service


Note the port for the lookup service in vsphere 6 is now 443

Before adding the vCenter an account with administrative access needs to be created to synchronize NSX Manager with the vCenter Server.
*If the password has non-Ascii characters, you must change it before synchronizing the NSX Manager with the vCenter Server

In my case I created a service account in the domain and then added it as administrator to the vCenter

nsxlab-12b

Back at the nsx manager, configure the vCenter connection

 

nsxlab-13b

 

If correct the status of both services will show as connected

In order for other users to access nsx log out of the vSphere client and log back in with the same account as used to connect from the nsx manager.

The icon for nsx should now be visible

You will have to specifically assign permissions on nsx to other users.
Drill down to the manager, and then Manage and Users

nsxlab-17

 

Add groups or accounts to the manage tab.
In this case I’m adding the user DCA\dca1 as an all powerful Enterprise Admin
