VMware vCloud Director static routing between edges.

[:nl]In my case I had a situation where a customer (one vCloud director Organization) needed to route traffic between vlans configured behind two seperated vShield Edge Gateways.

Example of the design

vcloud_director_situation

To accomplish the goal you need to Enable Static routing on both Edge Gateways.
Go to Administration – Select the vDC – Edge Gateways – Right click the gateway – Edge Gateway Services Static Routing – Toggle the checkbox and save.

static_routing

Then you need to configure static routing per Edge. Add a route from Edgex to vlan y and vica versa. Click add on the Static Routing tab and fill in:

add_route

Applied on: The “external network” from the design, not the vlan where you configure it on.
Name: Give it a description (ex. from Edge x to vlan y)
Network: The network you want to reach
Next Hop IP: Fill in the other Edge Gateway’s IP address

Click ok and ok to apply the changes.
