Reconfigure NSX to allow vCloud Director to create Org networks

If you have just deployed vCloud Director over NSX , it may happen that during the creation of a new VCD network, the operations fails with the error “Cannot deploy organization VDC network; Make sure vShield Manager infrastructure is properly configured and there are segment IDs available.” In this case, you need to change the configuration of the NSX transport zones from Multicast to either Hybrid or Unicast.

Fix NSX host preparation errors with manual installation of the components

I started to install VMware vCloud Director in my new lab, as I want to be ready to test the upcoming Veeam Cloud Connect Replication v10, with its native support for this cloud management platform. One of the requirements of vCloud Director is NSX, so I started with its installation. As I hit some errors in the “NSX Host Preparation” step, I learned how to fix them manually and how to automate a bit VIB deployments.
