VMware NSX Study – Day 1

Hi Guys,

I am back with a new blog post on NSX. Not sure, if you have liked my last blog about NSX Components but I am just sharing my journey towards VMware NSX.

When I get my first project in NSX, I did not have any knowledge of NSX. I have been given a very stringent timeline to deliver the project.

So, the day I received my first project, I first created a resource list that can help me in understanding the NSX. Though I have not completed the entire resources which I accumulated I studied the basics which were unavoidable to work in NSX 🙂

Here, I am sharing my resource list with you which might help you guys in your NSX Journey.

Very Obviously, I first searched the OEM i.e Vmware Knowledge Base and trust me, I found a lot of great documentation and guide books in the Vmware website for NSX. You can check below URL:


Here you will find version wise like VMware NSX 6.3 or NSX 6.4 documents mentioned below:


      1. Release Notes
      2. NSX Installation Guide
      3. Cross-vCenter NSX Installation Guide
      4. NSX Administration Guide
      5. NSX Upgrade Guide
      6. NSX Troubleshooting Guide
      7. NSX Logging and System Events
      8. NSX API Guide
      9. NSX for vSphere Command-line Interface Reference
      10. NSX for vSphere recommended Configurations Maximums.


Apart from this Vmware is having an excellent Hands-on Lab. Currently, there are 18 Labs, you can have a look.


Also, I found some more great articles, blogs, and videos on the internet. Few, I am mentioning in Day -1 Blog, and few will come on the next blogs.
